James Grieve is a justifiably popular dual-purpose apple variety, raised in Scotland at the end of the 19th century. James Grieve is a mid-season variety that is picked in early-mid September.  At this stage it is pleasantly acidic and refreshing and if it is too sharp for eating it can be used for cooking (cut it into small chunks, it keeps its shape when cooked).  After a few weeks the flavour sweetens and becomes quite mild, and it is then an excellent apple to eat in slices along with a cheese course.  The flesh is soft, somewhat like a firm pear in texture.

Another important James Grieve characteristic is its juiciness - bite into one and the flesh glistens with juice.  This makes it a great apple variety if you want to make your own apple juice.
