A relatively recent introduction from Europe that is ready for picking in November and stores very well, until the new year and often Springtime. A reliable heavy cropper that still yields well in less than good weather conditions. An attractive shiny red apple for keeping late. Flavour and appearance has been likened to a good Red Delicious, but it does much better in our climate than that variety.
Self fertile so will crop on it's own, or for the maximum crop pollinates well with Red Ellison, Greensleeves, Limelight, Red Falstaff, Howgate Wonder, Lanes Prince Albert, Charles Ross etc.
