Somerset variety, the seedling being found probably in early 1900s by a Mr. William Dabinett. (Dabinett being quite a common surname in Somerset). Good crops of apples which are smallish, greenish-yellow with red stripes and a red flush. They have a strong aroma and distinctive flavour. Dabinett is grown in most cider producing areas as it makes a bittersweet cider with a mellow, full-bodied astringency. Many cider makers use this variety as a single apple variety due to its excellent qualities. Self-fertile, mid-season flowering. Harvest in November.

Season of Use: Nov. For Cider Making
