Ellis Bitter has proved popular for providing good and regular crops of bittersweet cider apples early in the season. It is an old East Devon variety, producing a vigorous and spreading tree with a good centre leader habit. The juice is a high quality medium bittersweet with soft, astringent tannin, but is best blended for a more full-bodied cider. As the apples will not store they should be pressed soon after harvesting. Good general disease resistance and makes a healthy tree.
