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.


    As the name suggests, Yarlington Mill was found in the late 19th century as a seedling tree growing by a water mill in the area of Yarlington in Somerset, one of the traditional cider-producing areas of England.
