Christmas Pearmain is an attractive English apple from the late Victorian period. By today's standards it looks rather old-fashioned - but appealingly so.
The flavour is not perhaps in the first rank of Victorian apples, but nevertheless this is an apple that has a lot going for it. It is basically sweet but with a bit of richness and some sharpness to add interest. The flesh is firm, yellow, and fairly juicy.
It is also an easy apple to grow in the garden, with few problems, and it crops well. It is available from many fruit tree nurseries.
So not the most well-known of the Victorian apples, but a very good all-rounder.
