White Spanish Reinette A truly historic apple (also known as Reinette Blanche D’Espagne) which seems to have disappeared in Britain, as far as named examples are concerned, by the end of the 19th century. Dating back to the early 1600s in Europe. Apples are oblong to conical with glossy skin of pale green, becoming pale lemon, dotted with pale lenticels and with a warm flush in the sun. The stalk is short, obliquely set and often with a fleshy edge, set in a shallow and narrow cavity, with a small amount of smooth brown rayed russet. The eye is small and closed or half open, in a narrow ribbed basin, with erect or recurved sepals. The core is very open to the point of having ‘open plan’ cells. The flesh is pale cream, crisp, fine and very juicy with an excellent sweet and lemony flavor. It is a very refreshing dessert apple. Historic descriptions of it have also accounted it a very good cooking apple. Trees are free spurring, fruit when young and reliably. Pollination Group 4

Whitwick Pippin Found in a private garden in Whitwick, Leicestershire...the remarkable property of this apple is that it hangs on the tree almost indefinitely. If netted against birds the fruit will sometimes keep on the tree in reasonable condition until early March. It's a hard textured, long lasting, very late apple, dual purpose; edible as dessert from about Xmas Day. Similar in character to "Croft Late Seedling" but stronger flavour, higher vitamin C and redder in colour. The finder of this variety, Peter Edwards, wants the apple to be known as "Berkin Beauty", after the person who planted the original pip in the mid-fifties. Unfortunately we don't know the parent apple. It appears to be biennial; heavy crop in the 'on' year, a few apples in the 'off' year. They are green skinned with red stripes when in low light.
Wickson Crab Named for the great California fruit authority, this diminuitive crab hybrid is becoming Etters most critically acclaimed variety. Bred from two obscure crab varieties (Spitzenberg Crab X Newton Crab), Wickson typically measures from one and one half to two inches in diameter. An amazing amount of intense flavor is concentrated in this small package..... an extraordinary balance of sugar, acid, and aroma along with a refreshing trace of astringency. Because of its high sugar content (almost 25 points in the juice), Etter recommended this variety for champagne making. It certainly produces an exceptionally rich sweet cider that will sparkle with effervescence when allowed the chance. The small fruit crushes easily in the grinder and gives a very high juice yield. Wickson, however, is much more than a cider apple. Its powerful flavor makes it an extraordinary Sweetmeat confection for adults and sophisticated kids. Striped and flushed red over a cream ground, Wickson ripens here in mid Oc
