Yarlington Mill is a traditional English cider apple variety. It was discovered at the end of the 19th century and has been a mainstay of English commercial cider production ever since. 

It is a heavy-cropping variety and yields a large quantity of good quality bittersweet juice, which can be blended with other cider varieties. The apples tend to be a bit larger than is generally the case with cider varieties.

Growing and Training

Yarlington Mill produces apples from a young age. It will readily over-crop and as a result may become a biennial bearer, but this can be controlled by thinning the crop in the "on" year. It is generally quite easy to grow.
