Sussex apple varieties

First and Last

First and Last apple
History & Description

First and Last is a crisp, white apple with a sweet, interesting flavour that develops when the apple ripens on the tree or when stored. The lemon yellow skin is flushed red, becoming a darker red after a sunny summer.

The great apple expert Thomas Hogg wrote in 1851 that it is “much grown in the northern part of the county about Horsham and sent to Brighton market”.

Apples can be picked in mid October and stored until April.
