Red Millers Seedling was found in Sudbury, Suffolk around 1948 as a red form or ‘sport’ of the Berkshire apple Millers Seedling which itself was once popular apple in the Victorian period. Attractive red crimson and pink flushed streaks on a yellow green background, a distinctively sweet and juicy flesh but liable to bruising if handled badly so does not transport well making it unsuitable along with a short storage life for the supermarket trade. Fruits tend to be smallish so well worth thinning the crop to get good sized apples. Best picked and eaten straight from the tree.
