Description

A green and good cropper, with a sharp juicy, yet soft refreshing flavour, the tree fruits well in the North although with a slight biennial tendency. According to Robert Hogg in The Fruit Manual the original tree was found growing behind a wall at Gleaston Castle near Ulverston, Lancashire among a quantity of rubbish. Mr John Sander then introduced the apple in 1793 from his nursery in Keswick, Cumbria. Highly regarded by the Backhouse nurseries of York and Hilary Wilson of Cumbria.
