Description

Found in a cottage garden near Truro, Cornwall in about 1800, and brought to the attention of the RHS in 1813. High quality dessert variety with an unusual, irregular shape, and intense fragrance (Gillyflower is the Cornish for ‘Carnation’ with which it shares the distinctive clove-like fragrance). A vigorous variety that tends to be a tip bearer.This self-sterile dessert Apple is believed to have originated from Cornwall, UK in 1813
