An interesting and rather valuable old variety first mentioned as long ago as 1744. This dual purpose variety has the shape colour and, at times, smell of a lemon. Very distinctive, when ripe the flesh is sweet enough for desert, yet still maintains an underlying acidity which makes it very satisfying to eat. Cooked it is useful for a whole range of recipes, including Apple Jelly, Tarts and Mincemeats. Season October-December, often later. Pollinate with Spartan, Merton Knave, Ellisons, Howgate Wonder etc.
