Description

Originated in the 1840s, and introduced in 1857 by John Lane, nurseryman of Berkhampstead, Hertfordshire. A pale green fruit with pinkish flush, that is smooth and slightly greasy skinned. Does not keep quite as long as Bramley's Seedling or Monarch, but its compact growth and prolific and reliable cropping recommend its suitability for small gardens. One of the finest cooking apples, making a ‘lemony’ puree, or if kept till March makes a ‘refreshing’ eater too. Succeeds in most soils.
