A very early English apple, with a fairly strong flavour. The fruit is crisp when picked straight from the tree but does not keep.
Sorry we have not been able to produce any trees of this variety this season.
We may still be able to propagate it to order for you. Please contact us for more details.
George Cave is in flowering group 3. George Cave is partially self-fertile, but fruiting will be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other apple trees.
Fairly easy to grow, and a useful choice if you are looking for a very early (early - mid August) apple for your collection.
Raised by Mr George Cave, Essex, England in the early 1920s.
