Description

Excellent late cooking variety, first described in 1875 but probably much older. Very large handsome fruit, green with a deep rosy-red blush, which keep their shape when cooked. Superb, rich flavour, the fruit stores through until April. Widely grown in the North Riding of Yorkshire throughout the 1900s. The RHS gold-award winning botanical artist Bridget Gillespie describes Nancy Jackson as a “Buxom wench, firm-fleshed and smooth skinned”. Who are we to disagree? This self-sterile culinary Apple is believed to have originated from Yorkshire, UK before 1875
