DescriptionOne of the finest of all early dessert apples, this was very popular in Victorian and Edwardian times, being raised in Ireland and introduced into England in 1819 by the Kilkenny nurseryman John Robertson. The fruit, which are pale yellow with orange-red flushing, are best eaten straight off the tree when they have a lovely rich flavour, plenty of juice and are deliciously aromatic. The tree itself is moderately vigorous, slightly spreading in habit and a pure tip-bearer.
