An excellent English apple, once grown commercially on a small scale, and worthy of more attention.
Chivers Delight is basically a sweet apple, with a family resemblance to Cox's Orange Pippin, but with some sharpness to the flavour. The flesh is quite dense and crisp.
Although not related at all, Chivers Delight is quite similar to Braeburn in size, flavour, and crispness - if you like Braeburn apples you will probably like Chivers Delight.
Chivers Delight ripens fairly late in the season, and the apples can be stored for about 3 months in a refrigerator without loss of flavour.
Overall a very pleasing well-balanced apple.
