Raised in 1956, so not especially old but a variety never fully appreciated and deserving wider cultivation, the fine, bright coloured fruits are ready for picking mid October and for use right through December, the flavour is excellent rich, aromatic but sweet too. Gavin arose as a cross of Merton Worcester and a seedling variety with a scab resistance and this quality has been passed on: Gavin has excellent scab resistance and disease resistance in general, as well as beautiful blossom. Recommended. Pollinate with Greensleeves, Orleans, Charles Ross etc.
