Westcountry variety first known in Cornwall in 1813. It has endured because of it's enticing flavour which is intensely imbued with notes of cinnamon, spice and pear-drops. Harvest in October, for use until Christmas, sometimes later. The fruits have a handsome bright red flush and slight russet patches in a similar style to Cox's.
Pollinates easily; Scrumptious, Redsleeves, Limelight, Red Devil, Herefordshire Russet, Ellisons Orange, Rajka, Bountiful are all suitable.
