DescriptionRaised in Berkshire c 1890 by Charles Ross who was the Head Gardener at Welford Park in Newbury, and is a cross between Cox's Orange Pippin (from which it gets some of its flavour) and Peasgood's Nonsuch (from which it gets its size). It makes a modestly sized tree tolerant of a wide range of soils and climates, and is hardy with a tolerance of coastal conditions and chalky soils. The fruit are greenish-yellow, flushed red and striped, the juice of which can be used for cider-making.
