An old Irish variety of outstanding beautiful colouring and remarkable flavour. The fruits are small but the complex patterning of orange red stripes and blotches over a bright greenish gold base have been likened to a tortoise shell butterfly. Not just a beautiful apple, the pale yellow firm flesh has a sweet but intense flavour which is at its best from August to late September.
