We are proud to offer this extremely important historical variety for sale. The original tree in Isaac Newton's garden at Woolsthorpe Manor in Lincolnshire, under which 'the notion of gravity came into his mind occasion'd by the fall of an apple,' was propagated from before its eventual demise in 1814. Over the years material has been retained by repropagation, and the trees we offer are direct descendants of this. It produces a distinctly ugly cooking apple which is quite shy to crop, but cooks to a sweet delicately flavoured puree.
