Description

Introduced in the 1840s by William Brownlee of Hemel Hempstead, this late dessert apple was prized by the Victorians for its intense sweet-sharp highly aromatic fruit. The trees are moderately vigorous, and bear strikingly attractive blossom, with carmine buds opening to pink, and cropping is generally good. Commended by the Backhouse nursery, and despite its Hampshire origins, it is reputed to do well in the north of England.This self-fertile dessert Apple is believed to have originated from Hemel Hempstead, UK in 1848
