Description

Very ornamental variety, both when in blossom and when the tree hangs laden with bright orange red-striped fruit in October. Strong, rich, aromatic flavour. Very heavy cropper - thin in June to ensure good-sized fruit. Raised in 1840 in Barnack, Lincolnshire. Bunyard reported in 1920 that it is "a useful and handy sort which does well on chalky subsoils”. RHS Award of Merit 1899. This self-sterile dual-purpose Apple is believed to have originated from Lincolnshire, UK in 1840
