Ellis Bitter

Ellis Bitter is an heirloom English bittersweet cider variety from Devon, England. This apple is unpalatable fresh, but is a popular choice for cider in its native England.

A larger than average cider variety (2 1/4"), yellow with orange and red streaks. Yields a high alcohol, full body, dry, and astringent cider.

The tree is vigorous, precocious and productive; susceptible to fire blight, and moderately susceptible to scab. Ellis Bitter is a tip bearer, late blooming, and September harvest. Short storage life.
