Morgan Sweet is a traditional English west-country cider variety, producing a full sweet cider juice.

Although now usually classified as a cider apple variety, Morgan Sweet can be used when fully ripe as a passable eating apple. Many city children evacuated to the Somerset countryside during the Second World War have fond memories of Morgan Sweet as an eating apple - it was often the only kind available at the time.
