Kingston Black --- Semi Dwarf
The flavor of Kingston Black is such a fine, complex combination of sweet, sharp and bitter qualities that it makes a wonderful hard cider even without blending with other varieties. Classified as a 'bittersharp' apple, the English consider it to be the standard cultivar for making a high quality, single variety cider. A very large harvest of medium-size, red apples ripens mid-October. Don't eat it; cider it!
On semi-dwarf MM106 rootstock, trees will grow to 15' tall. Needs a pollenizer.
