The Northern Fruit Group
Promoting fruit growing in the North of England
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
• Green Balsam
• Hunt House
• Nancy Jackson
• Ribston 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.
