George Cave is in flowering group 3. George Cave is partially self-fertile, but fruiting will be improved if there is a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other apple trees.
Fairly easy to grow, and a useful choice if you are looking for a very early (early - mid August) apple for your collection.
Raised by Mr George Cave, Essex, England in the early 1920s.
