Description

This variety was recorded in 1883 in Carse of Gowrie in Scotland, but probably much older. This very red heavily ribbed fruit is sweet, crisp and juicy, and is reputed to have got its name from a ploughman who was caught stealing apples on the Megginch estate and was shot by the gamekeeper. His wife got the bag of apples and threw them on the compost heap where a seedling then grew and was given its name. This self-sterile dessert Apple is believed to have originated from Carse of Gowrie, Scotland before 1883
