Grown from a Christmas time apple pip about 40 years ago and grafted onto unknown rootstock by local nurseryman. An eating apple which is slow to discolour when peeled. Extremely good flavour and very juicy. This has now been further propagated by The Northern Fruit Group and the East Riding of Yorkshire C.C. who have planted specimens in their Millennium Orchard. Grafted specimens have been sold at £10 during the October Apple Day at the Millennium Orchard in Beverley. Grafting stocks have now been sent to the National Fruit Collection at Brogdale in Kent.
