Description

Rare traditional Yorkshire variety, originating in the famous Backhouse nursery in York, sometime before 1831. Bright red flushed second-early dessert apple which is sharp and hard. The tree is hardy, vigorous, and spreading, and bears large brightly coloured fruit. Counted as a dessert variety, the flavour is crisp and sharp (not one for the aficionados of Jazz or Gala!), and perhaps better used as a dual-purpose apple.This self-sterile dessert Apple is believed to have originated from Yorkshire, UK in 1831
