Tom Putt is an old English cider variety, which can also be used for cooking. The fruit size is quite large for a cider variety, and the sharp flavour mellows when cooked. Very popular in South West England. This apple produces cider that is dry & sharp which can be sweetened by blending. A very distinct apple being flat round in shape with prominent angular ribs which terminate at the base in a crown. The tree is a strong grower. If pruned heavily it quickly rejuvenates. Apples need to be harvested early, the majority in early September.
