Description

Famous old English apple, discovered by Bess Pool in the early 1700s in a Nottinghamshire wood. The fruit achieved local fame for outstanding flavour and was taken up by a local nurseryman: JR Pearson of Chilwell. Large oblong flat-sided fruit with a beautiful crimson flush - the flesh is rich and sweet, though tender and rather crumbly to modern tastes. Can be shy to crop - dust with sulphate of potash every spring. This self-sterile dessert Apple is believed to have originated from Nottinghamshire, UK before 1725
