James Grieve

James Grieve are a juicy apple with strong acidity at first, which then mellows as the fruit matures during September, but the flesh softens soon thereafter. When picked early, it makes a sweet and delicate stewed apple, but then can be used as a dessert apple. Introduced from Scotland in 1893, it is a cross between Cox Orange Pippin and Pott’s Seedling, a popular Scottish cooking apple of the time.
