How to grow

Broadholme Beauty is easy to grow, and a regular cropper.

It has good disease resistance, although curiously the  branches (not the fruit) sometimes exhibit mild symptoms of canker.



Although it sounds like a traditional English apple, Broadholme Beauty was actually introduced in 2002. However it has traditional origins, being a cross between James Grieve and Lane's Prince Albert.  It was raised by Cecil Lovely and named after the village of Broadholme in the county of Lincolnshire where he lived.
