What on earth is a gribble ?

The term sprung up in the countryside of old England. It refers to trees that were grown from the seeds of last year’s cider pressing. Pomace, that mess of squished apples contained the seeds of many a potential apple tree.


Since our pressings include hundreds of apple cultivars, the potential of variation is exciting. Add to that the fact that the apple genome boasts around 57,000 genes (double that of human beings actually), the possibilities for uniqueness are impressive indeed. All these trees are grown organically from our organic seed, and include heirlooms (some hundreds of years old), new comers, red fleshed apples, true crabs, wild local, and cultivars from distant shores.


Seed also available. Please read details in seed link, since it takes special procedures to germinate tree seeds.
