Description

Widely grown in Scotland and Lancashire in the 1900s. this is a very good cooking apple for northern gardens. Very hardy, and produces heavy crops of conical yellow-green fruit which are often prominently ribbed, ‘Britchett’s were know to have been grown in the Lyth valley, Cumbria as far back as the 1780s. The fruit is of rich sub-acid flavour, and keeps it shape when cooked.
