I notice the photos show 5cm fruit, true Dr Harvey grows more like 10cm

Best of all apples, firm when young and good for cooking, softer with age and a good eater with a subtle orangy taste and by far the best apple to make mincemeat for mincemeat tarts at Christmas. If I only had one apple this would be it.
