Introduced by popular request as it is now a prevalent and popular supermarket apple of fine, refreshing flavour. It is very late maturing and not always reliable in this country. However, it is often heavy cropping and may well mature in time for picking if it is grown as a Supercolumn where the benefit of extra sunlight may help ripen the fruits, which should be picked from late October onwards. They will store well into March. Good pollinators include: Gala, Pixie, Orleans Reinette, James Grieve etc.
