History and description of Freyberg

Freyberg apple was raised in 1934 by J H Kidd at Greytown, Wairarapa, New Zealand from a Golden Delicious X Cox's Orange Pippin seedling. Named after military hero Lord Freyberg who was Governor General New Zealand 1946-52. Selected for amateurs and introduced 1958. The combination of the sweetness and golden colour of Golden Delicious with the strong aromatic flavour of Cox's Orange Pippin makes Freyberg one of the most delicious apples.

A medium-sized, round-conical fruit. Golden yellow skin, occasionally with a faint brownish purple flush and slight russeting. Creamy-white, firm flesh. Very sweet and honeyed but with a good Cox-like aromatic flavour.

A tree of weak vigour. Good cropper. The fruit hangs well on the tree.
