We have been asked many times for this old variety from Berkshire in the Mid 1800's, once a prevalent market variety but now almost disappeared. An amazing rounded fruit striped and flushed in bright pinky red. The flavour too is distinctive and much loved, sweet but clean and refreshing and with a crisp but yielding flesh which is never soggy or tough. An apple which pleased many but its commercial downfall was brought about by its failure to travel well. A good garden tree which benefits from thinning to keep the fruit size of an acceptable grade. Season late August - September. Pollinate with Redsleeves, Saturn, Meridian, Sunrise, Bountiful etc.
