Cornish Aromatic is an elegant old-fashioned apple variety from Cornwall. The skin is rough and dry and and looks and feels like an expensive but worn old tapestry. The flesh is firm, not particularly juicy, and the flavour is quite rich with a hint of pineapple.
It is quite a good apple tree for the garden, being easy to grow and resistant to the main apple diseases.
In a good summer (e.g. 2006) this is a very enjoyable apple.
