We are very pleased to have finally acquired stock of this very old variety which was indeed raised at the Royal Estate so close to our Nursery here in Norfolk. Believed to be a Winter Pearmain Seedling, it makes a moderately vigorous spreading tree with large fruits which should be harvested in Mid October, for use from November to March. When cooked the flesh turns to a very intensely flavoured cream puree at first, lighter and more subtly flavoured as the season progresses. It can also be used as an eater when fully ripe. The outstandingly attractive very dark pink blossom is a feature of this variety. Pollinate with Greensleeves, Charles Ross, Lanes Prince Albert etc.
