A classic English hard cider apple variety, which produces a "bittersweet" juice. It is also one of the most reliable and easy cider varieties to grow.
Unlike many hard cider varieties which are best-used for blended ciders, Dabinett can also be used to produce a single-varietal full-bodied medium-dry cider.
Note that Dabinett apples are not suitable for eating fresh, they can only be used for producing juice for hard cider.

Dabinett is one of the most reliable cider varieties, with above average disease resistance.
The flowering period data for Dabinett is quite inconclusive, suggesting that it is influenced by local microclimates. However it is basically a late-flowering variety, possibly very-late in some situations. Fortunately it is also reasonably self-fertile.
Dabinett originates from the traditional cider region of Somerset, England in the mid-19th century. It is possibly a seedling of Chisel Jersey.
