"This cooking apple isn’t just easy to grow, it also keeps its shape when cooked and is sweeter than the majority of other cookers. Introduced by East Malling Research Station in the 1960’s, its quite modern for a cooking apple. I like to let the fruit ripen on the tree, this allows it to sweeten more, meaning you can eat it like a dessert apple too. A perfect dual use apple." Flowering group 3. Harvest September. Height 2-3m. This variety is not self fertile. Grown on M26 rootstock.
Growing your own fruit has to be one of the most rewarding things any gardener can do. Not only can you grow varieties that you’d be hard pushed to find in any greengrocer, but you can grow the more expensive fruit, saving money along the way. Included in my fruit range are varieties I’ve grown for years on my allotment and in my garden, all of which are firm favourites of mine, my family and friends. All the varieties grow really well on an allotment and in a garden.
