Cooking Apple 'Plum Vite' 7L Pot - Rootstock MM106
'Plum Vite' is a dual purpose dessert/culinary variety that produces a sweet and sharp apple with plenty of juiciness. It is great for those who want apples early in the season, as fruit can be ready by July with the right conditions. It has a soft rather than crisp texture with a rich and fruity flavour and can be cooked to a delicate puree that is unsurpassed by other early cookers. It is a particularly good variety for growing in the Westcountry as it has a natural resistance to scab. 'Plum Vite' originates from Exeter in Devon.
