Colwall Quoining

Colwall Quoining

A dessert apple, received by the National Fruit Trials in 1949 from Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire.

The village of Colwall is just in Herefordshire on the western side of the Malvern Hills. The fruit has very distinct angular ridges: ‘quoining’ is said to mean corners indicating this angular nature and there are several other quoining varities in this group of apples. The fruit has crisp, coarse flesh with a sweet sub-acid, slightly nutty flavour. Keeps until November.

There are believed to be 28 varieties of Worcestershire apple
