Hawkridge apple
History & Description

The Hawridge is a large, sweet, early September apple from Hawkridge Farm, near Herstmonceux.

In 1851, Robert Hogg wrote that it was “a very popular apple in East Sussex, especially around Hailsham, Heathfield and those parts where it is met with in almost every orchard and garden”.

The skin is flushed red with red and crimson stripes. The fruit ripens in early September and can be stored until October.
