Pig Aderyn Apple
History & Discovery
Trees are still found growing at St Dogmael's Abbey near Carmarthen. An old Welsh variety perhaps of Norman origin.
A midseason eating apple with sweet and juicy flesh. It is green skinned with deep scarlet stripes. The top of the apple resembles a bird's beak which is "pig aderyn" in Welsh. Pig Aderyn also makes an excellent single vintage cider. The Bishop of St David's is recorded as having criticized the St Dogmael's Monks for their excessive drinking!
Be sure to visit the White Hart pub opposite the Abbey if you are in the area.

All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is in poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
Select your rootstock by using the paypal button corresponding to the eventual size of tree you desire. You will have the option to select the number of trees you wish to order on the Paypal page.
