History and description of Sweet Society

Sweet Society is a new variety bred by Hugh Ermen and first introduced in 2004. It is part of a range of plants and trees selected by the Royal Horticultural Society to celebrate the Bicentennial. The fruit is similar to a good coloured Cox's Orange Pippin with attractive russet streaks and a good red flush on a yellow green background. The flavour is sweet and rich and highly aromatic. It produces a free spurring, compact bushy tree. Cropping is heavy and thinning of fruit is recommended to avoid small fruit
