Wickson Crab

 American Cider Apple

            [Acid-high; Sugar-very high]

Sweet, Sharp, Pungent flavour

            This is a fantastic apple due to its versatility and well-adapted plant.  The Wickson Crab produces a small, pink/red fruit that is sweet for a crab, as well as highly acidic.  This apple also has a pungently strong flavour.  This varietal excels as a component for making cider, as a complimentary and flavourful source of acid.  However most cider-makers prefer a small amount of this apple so as to not over-power the main bittersweet or aromatic character of the cider blend.  Wickson crab is also high in pectin, so great for making jams and jellies.  Finally, this is a crab, with gorgeous white blossoms, and serves as a great pollinator as well. Heavy crop. Good disease resistance.
