How to grow

Cornish Aromatic is well-suited to the mild wet climate of the Cornish peninsula, and is generally a good choice for areas with wet climates because of its natural resistance to scab, a disease which is more prevalent in wetter areas. However to get the best flavour try to plant it in a spot that gets maximum sunshine.

Advice on fruit tree pollination.

History

Known from Cornwall, England, early 19th century, but probably older.
