A classic English hard cider apple variety, which produces a "bittersweet" juice. It is also one of the most reliable and easy cider varieties to grow.
Unlike many hard cider varieties which are best-used for blended ciders, Dabinett can also be used to produce a single-varietal full-bodied medium-dry cider.
Note that Dabinett apples are not suitable for eating fresh, they can only be used for producing juice for hard cider.

Dabinett is in flowering group 5. Dabinett is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, although fruiting may be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Like all cider-apple varieties it can also be pollinated by most other apple varieties or crab-apples flowering at the same time.
Dabinett is one of the most reliable cider varieties, with above average disease resistance.
It is considered self-fertile and precocious, but because it flowers very late it can still sometimes not set fruit if the weather is bad (since there will not be many other varieties flowering at the same time).
Dabinett originates from the traditional cider region of Somerset, England in the mid-19th century. It is possibly a seedling of Chisel Jersey.
