    Large, very juicy, and crisp, with highly variable brix/acid ratio. Decent fresh eating apple. Seems like a larger, highly crisp Mac.

    We have this tree in our garden, and it produces large crops of crisp, bland, dry-fleshed apples that are a disappointment every time we eat one. The tree is healthy and vigorous, and we got it to replace a previous Florina which developed canker. The first tree had fabulous apples: juicy, sweet/tart, crisp, so at best the flavour is unreliable.
