History and description of Golden Harvey

A very old variety which probably arose in the early 1600's in Hertfordshire when it was known as Round Russet Harvey. A popular dessert apple in Victorian times but fell from favour in the 1890’s, being regarded as too small.

A golden, russetted apple. Intense sweet sharp flavour. Makes a strong cider due to the high specific gravity of its juice and was as a result also called Brandy Apple.

A tree of great vigour. Good cropper.
