Description

First raised in 1835 by the Head Gardener at Holker Hall, Cumbria (For the Duke of Devonshire - and hence its name), this became one of the most popular dessert varieties in Edwardian times. It has an intense sweet-sharp flavour very similar to Ashmead's Kernel. Medium-sized flattish apples which are a golden-green, with some russeting, and a tolerance of wetter regions, it grows well in Cumbria, being scab resistant.
