A superb apple, similar to Cox's Orange Pippin but is much better for garden cultivation as it requires less maintenance. The apples themselves are slightly smaller then those of a Cox with quite a sharp taste and pleasant, aromatic flesh. The fruit are light green/yellow flushed with red. Pick in mid-season for use in October to December.
This selection can on occasion produce some fruit by itself but generally requires another apple cultivar planted nearby for pollination to fruit well.
