Staffordshire,UK (1875)


This is a very prolific variety, and a great pollinator of other of apples, nearing fine ornamental conical fruits that are bright orange and scarlet. Suitable for making crab apple jelly, it is probably the best known crab apple grown in gardens, although it is susceptible to apple scab. However, it retains its popularity as it produces masses of pink budded white blossom in the spring followed by bright red and orange fruits in the autumn that are almost sweet enough to be eaten raw when ripe and which will hang on the tree well into winter.
