Scotch Bridget is a popular Scottish cooking apple, and also found in gardens in Cumbria and south-west England.
Its popularity is partly down to its good cooking qualities, and partly its ability to thrive in the mild but wet conditions encountered in the north west of England and Scotland.
The apples are juicy and moderately acidic. When cooked they retain most of their shape.

Scotch Bridget is a good choice for anyone wanting to grow apples in a damp wet climate. It also ripens a bit later than other varieties usually found in the north-west.
Scotland, 19th century.
