This variety of apple tree grows a good dual purpose eater and cooker with a sweet flavour that improves with time, thought to be at it's best when stored until or just after Christmas. The apples themselves are large and golden, flushed with red and orange and slightly russetted. The tree grows vigorously and generally crops well. Originally from Rezare near Launceston in Cornwall.
