Kingston Black has somewhat legendary status amongst cider makers. Its bittersharp juice is of the highest quality, with well balanced tannin and acidity contributing to a full-bodied, distinctive single variety cider. However, it is not the easiest tree to grow; cropping can be shy and it can be prone to scab and canker. It arose in the village of Kingston, Somerset in the mid-19th century where it is locally known as Black Taunton. Widely planted in orchards cross the cider growing regions.
