Description

Perhaps the best known, and most widely available fully russeted variety. The fruit are golden russet, richly flavoured, and of medium size. Good cropper, hardy and resistant to scab. Compact growth and suitable for pot culture, but remember it is a spur bearer. The flowers are tolerant of late frosts. Often assumed to have originated from Egremont in Cumbria, but was raised on the estate of Lord Egremont at Petworth in Sussex.
