Description

The Herefordshire Pomona stated in the early 1880s that this variety is "firm, crisp, juicy, sugary, rich and highly aromatic, and should be found in every garden" Raised by Dr Ashmead in Gloucester c1700 as an offspring of Nonpareil, the fruit has a rich golden brown semi-russeted skin with firm flesh. Cropping can be irregular, and although not well-suited to exposed sites - this remains a fantastic-flavoured apple for the connoisseur.
