DescriptionAn extremely old variety of cooking apple, very elongated and angular in appearance. Already known by the early 1620s, the exact origin of this variety is unclear, but it is almost certainly a seedling of the costard apples introduce in to the UK by the Normans in the 11th and 12th Centuries. Very large pale yellow or silvery green fruit with a very smooth skin, this cooks to a firm sharp puree. Medium sized spreading tree, and a heavy cropper.
