Hereford Redstreak is a very old variety, with its origins going back to the 1600s. In the 17th century it was considered as the finest cider variety in England. or even earlier, originating from Hereford. It produces medium-sized fruit, that ends up by making a pink cider, often with a relatively high alcohol content. It is a diploid variety, so not self-fertile: another apple variety is required as a pollinator.
