APPLE, BLOODY PLOUGHMAN (Malus domestica Dabinett)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

 

An old Scottish variety introduced in 1883. The story behind this variety was that a ploughman on Megginch Estate was caught stealing apples for his family and was shot by the gamekeeper. His body was returned to his widow who found some of the stolen apples in his pocket. She threw these on the rubbish heap and a seedling arose from the heap and this was named after the unfortunate ploughman. It is a mid to late season apple, ripening to a remarkable dark maroon red with a pink tinged flesh. Eaten straight from the tree it has a mild, fresh sweet flavour and is juicy. It makes excellent pink juicy and a good cider. Excellent for growing in Scotland as well as the rest of the UK.
