Description

One of the best cooking apples available, deserving a place in any orchard, it is hardy and tolerant of late frost. Said to have been found in the thatch of the Hardings Arms at King's Newton in Derbyshire by Mr Taylor in 1870, and introduced commercially by Pearsons of Nottingham in 1887. The fruit are very large and colourful, with yellow flesh heavily flushed with scarlet, and which cook to a full-flavoured yellow fluff with a sweet aroma. With its long keeping qualities, it mellows into a sharp but very acceptable dessert apple by Christmas time.
