Description

The origins of this variety are uncertain, but probably arose in Lancashire where it was widely grown c1850. Introduced to the market by nurseryman Richard Smith of Worcester it was known as Tom Matthews cider apple. The Victorians also used this variety for the shrub border as the blossoms are particularly striking. Yellow, conical shaped apple, does not fall when cooked, and makes good Apple Sauce. The tree is of low vigour and is a regular cropper.
