Margil is a very old apple variety, known in England in the 1750s but likely to have been imported from France.
It became popular in England in the 19th century, and was rated by the Victorian author Robert Hogg as "One of the finest dessert apples".
The flesh is firm rather than crisp. The flavor is intense, rich, and aromatic, with many nuances.
Margil produces a tree of low or average vigor. Cropping can be heavy once the tree is well established. Disease resistance is average. Overall Margil is fairly easy to grow.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Margil is thought to originate from France in the early 18th century. It is possibly one of the parents of Cox's Orange Pippin.
