Winter Gem is a superb introduction to our range and is proving to be an excellent variety for garden use, hardy and suitable for planting in all areas, and generally trouble free. It is a heavy and reliable cropper with highly attractive rich pink blushed fruits which have a distinctly rich juicy, crisply sweet flavour no doubt inherited from its Cox parentage. Winter Gem is a superb keeper. Ready for picking October and may be used at least until the end of March. Winter Gem is an easily grown and very rewarding variety which has performed well on all rootstocks and training methods but has been especially impressive as a Supercolumn. Highly recommended. Suitable pollinators include: Redsleeves, James Grieve, Sunset, Falstaff, Fiesta etc.
