There are several apples that originate in Yorkshire

At The Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate in November 2001, 16 Yorkshire cultivars were planted by members of the Northern Fruit Group. This was done as a part of the Groups efforts to preserve heritage cultivars.

The Yorkshire apple varieties planted were:-

• Acklam Russet

Charlestown Pippin

Dog's Snout

Fillingham Pippin

Flower of the Town

Grandpa Buxton

• Green Balsam

• Hunt House

New Bess Pool

• Nancy Jackson

• Ribston Pippin

Sharleston Pippin

• Yorkshire Aromatic

Yorkshire Beauty (syn Greenup’s pippin)

• Yorkshire Cockpit

• Yorkshire Greening

Another Yorkshire apple is the Syke House Russet, from Sykehouse near Thorne. There are a few trees that claim to be this apple and the Northern Fruit Group is working to confirm their authenticity.
