Description

Found in the garden of a Mr Greenup, a shoemaker of Keswick, and introduced by Clarke & Atkinson nurserymen of Keswick in the late 1700s. This is a hardy, good yielding tree producing quality fruit even in difficult conditions of cold and wet. Known locally also as the ‘Yorkshire Beauty', this is a handsome fruit, juicy, and well-flavoured and which makes wonderful baked apples when stuffed with raisins and brown sugar.This self-sterile dual-purpose Apple is believed to have originated from Cumbria, UK in 1769
