Arthur Turner Cooking Apple
The Arthur Turner apple tree was bred in 1912 at Slough, Berkshire in the UK.
This is a good cooking apple with an acidic taste.
It's a partially self-fertile variety which produces fruit earlier in the year than most,
from late September onwards.
The pollination group is 3.
Arthur Turner has good resistance to frost.
Unusually this apple tree was awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit (1945) for the very
attractive flowers it produces.
It gives a good, reliable crop of apples which are green, yellow to tinged with orange.
Arthur Turner is a very versatile apple for cooking. When cooked it breaks down to a sweet
puree with the result that it requires little additional sugar in pies and sauces. It makes
one of the best baked apples ever, a treat which should be sampled more often than it is
Middle to late season
