Description

A cross between Lord Grosvenor and Keswick Codlin. It was introduced by Messrs Cross of Wisbech in 1899. Pale greenish yellow, white flesh, medium sized, conical apple, this is a very hardy variety, usually free from both apple scab and canker, and suited to growing in Scotland. The tree bears young, and is a heavy cropper but can often be biennial. Bunyard says “The best of early codlins for crop, vigour, and appearance” (A Handbook of Fruits - 1920) This partially self-fertile culinary Apple is believed to have originated from Cambridgeshire, UK in 1899
