Description

First recorded around 1600. It was so named because of its unique shape! Cooks to a robust flavoured, slightly perfumed puree, needing a little additional sugar. The fruit is large, shiny, strongly red-striped, and stores well for several months. Flavour mellows with time to an excellent brisk eating apple, or ideal for enlivening salads.
