Description

An extremely old and unusual variety for the pomological connoisseur! Raised in 1785 by Mr White of Withy Court in Worcestershire, this produces small golden yellow fruit with an intense flavour, sweet yet sharp, rich, nutty and with hints of honey and pineapple. Upright growth which isn't too vigorous, so suitable for a smaller garden - albeit one where sufficient warmth can be provided for the fruit to develop their full flavour. Cropping can be irregular, but it is most definitely worth the wait.
