Chegworth Beauty is a Malus domestica cross between Gala and Redfree apples. They are currently produced and distributed mainly by Chegworth Valley, a farm in Kent, England. Chegworth Valley uses organic farming methods.
Apples contain a variety of nutrients, including Vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, and dietary fiber. They also have phytonutrients, which are important in protecting against free radicals.
Chegworth Beauties are used by Chegworth Valley farms in their juice. These apples can also be eaten fresh out of hand.
Organic apples, such as Chegworth Beauties, don't always have the beautiful, polished appearance as other apples found in stores. Instead, farmers who grow organic apples learn to tolerate a certain degree of variation in appearance in favor of getting a product free from potentially harmful pesticides.
Chegworth Beauty was introduced in France in 1980. Today they are grown in southern England, in Kent at Chegworth Valley fruit farm. Chegworth Valley once belonged to England's King Henry VIII. Today, Chegworth Beauties are one variety of several unusual varieties grown at the farm.
