Description

This variety was discovered at Ribston Hall near Knaresborough, and is thought to have come from a seed taken there from Normandy in 1688, and given to Sir Henry Goodricke. The first tree blew down in 1810 but did not die until 1835, when a young shoot sprouted and survived until a gale in 1928. The fruit that we offer is a direct descendent of this. The tree is a good cropper being hardy and prolific throughout northern Europe and The fruit is of excellent quality, with an intense, rich aromatic flavour, and firm juicy deep cream flesh.
