Dabinett, introduced in 1860 in Somerset (it was discovered by William Dabinett as a natural seedling in a hedge), grows into a small tree; it is a very fertile variety, and a regular cropper. It is diploid and self-fertile. It produces bitter-sweet fruit that is ready to harvest in late October-early November. Its quality is such that it is frequently used to make a mono-varietal cider.
