A sport of the highly regarded and already very popular Falstaff, but with a bright ruby red skin colouring This variety has fine eating qualities with a sweet but refreshing flavour and a very crisp texture. HIGHLY FROST RESISTANT - WILL SET AT -4 degrees C. It is claimed that this variety is the heaviest cropper of all. Such an attractive garden tree with large mauvey pink, red tinged flowers, and the fruits so ornamental you won't want to pick them! Stores very well, until January or longer. Very easy to grow and prune. Quite simply must be included as a part of any fruit tree planting programme. Partly self fertile, pollinates well with Cox and Cox type apples. The apple is like a superb very highly coloured Jonagold, will do well in less favourable areas and the north, highly recommended. Wide range of pollinators are suitable.
