A lovely cooking apple with a somewhat nutty flavour and a pleasant acidity.

Similar to the Granny Smith, it will keep its shape when baked, making it an excellent apple for pies, but will also cook down to a yellow tinted sauce with a good flavour and lemony tang.

 

A medium sized apple, with a yellow-green skin that will blush with red on the sunny side. The flesh is juicy, crisp and white.

 

A moderately vigorous, upright tree with a spreading habit. Spur bearing.

 

Uses: Excellent qualities for baking and for sauce. Has excellent storage qualities and can keep for many months in refrigeration.
