Description

A very attractive apple often used for dining table displays in Victorian time. Large fruits striped and flushed with orange and red, with white flesh and sweet flavour. Esteemed as a cooking apple, it keeps its shape when baked. Introduced in 1857 by Samuel Greatorex in Knighton St. Mary, as a seedling from Blenheim Orange. The tree is hardy, tolerant of wetter conditions, of spreading habit with attractive blossom, and is both a good cropper and a good keeper.This partially self-fertile dual-purpose Apple is believed to have originated from Leicestershire, UK in 1857
