Though Chivers Delight is a variety that has been around for three-quarters of a century, and is still available from various nurseries, it has never become widely grown. And yet on the whole it is a good eating apple, remaining crisp for quite some time, and it can be kept until January. It has a long stalk and the apple looks not dissimilar to Cox’s Orange Pippin, often a little larger. It is quite upright in growing habit. On certain soils, canker can be a problem. Suitable for planting throughout the UK.
