Re Cider Apple names, Round Here (East Devon ) we have Morgan Sweets, Pigsnouts, Gillyflowers, Turnip Apples, and the original Stinking Bishop, which gave its name to the cheese of the same name whose rind was washed in cider made from it it as part of the maturing process, Also Kingston Blacks and Dabinetts.
Cider was rarely made from one variety, but from a blend of various apples each one intended to impart some individual nuance to the final flavour.
