A really lovely and highly valued old variety which began life being discovered grown on a rubbish heap near Ulverston! It was introduced in 1793 and subsequently became a very prevalent early cooker of the 19th century and a popular market variety. Little seen these days, it is a pale green, yellow flushed apple with a cream flesh. The flavour is so sweet it seldom needs sugar and it cooks to a juicy cream froth. It is a variety of great culinary value, having been recommended for jellies and is suitable for many purposes. The tree is compact and the blossom very attractive. Ready for picking mid August and for use through to October. Good pollinators include: Kidds Orange, Sunset, Greensleeves, Laxton Superb, Tom Putt etc.
