Description

Probably originating from Bismarck, Tasmania around 1870, this is a lovely mid-to-late season variety with round greenish-yellow fruits heavily flushed with carmine red. The crisp and juicy fruit cooks to a well-flavoured greenish-yellow fluff. The tree is moderately vigorous and spreading, but the real attraction of this variety is that cropping is heavy and reliable, even in the coldest parts of the UK, and appears in the Backhouse catalogue in the early 1900s as a ‘select keeper’.This partially self-fertile culinary Apple is believed to have originated from Tasmania, Australia in 1861
