Court of Wick
Description: Court of Wick is a red flushed eating apple. It's flesh is juicy and crisp with intense fruity flavour and yellow in colour. Skin is russet freckled over gold. The medium-sized fruits are ready to pick in October but they will hold onto the tree for quite a long time after that. Can be used to make home pressed apple juice and cider.
History: Originated from Court of Wick, Claverham, Nr Yatton in Somerset, England. Introduced by Mr Wood of Huntingdom in the 1790's. Probably arose a lot earlier. Widely grown in gardens during the 19th Century.
