Northwood is a typical pure sweet Devon cider apple, originating from the Crediton area. It is also known as Woodbine due to the honeysuckle aromas of its juice. Northwood cider has little astringency but makes a soft, fruity and good quality cider.
Northwood has been used to produce single varietal cider, owing to it’s high sugar, soft tannins, unique aroma and full flavour.
The apples are coloured yellowish-green and flushed red, with the resulting cider sweet, soft and fruity. The trees are vigorous growers and good reliable croppers. It is a late harvesting variety.
