A good cropper used in modern orchards. Medium sized, conical, pale yellow apples that drop from the tree when ripe. Flesh is white, sweet and firm. A vintage quality cider apple that also makes good juice.
In good years or given protection it can produce heavy crops of juicy, sweet, red purple fruit that ripens in July. The fruit can be picked unripe, as they do ripen off the tree. Methley is self fertile.
