Yarlington Mill

UK cider variety
Arose Yarlington, near North Cadbury, where it grew out of a wall by a water wheel.  Reputedly discovered by Mr Bartelett-probably in the early 1900s-it was transplanted into the gardens of Yarlington Mill where it was probably propagated by nurseryman Harry Masters, and soon achieved local fame for its high yields

The fruit is small and red flushed over pale yellow fruit
Produces sweet slightly astringent medium bittersweet cider of 'good aroma' and flavour.

Harvest late October-Mid November
