An old variety. The apples are small, russeted and not particularly attractive but they have a very unusual and distinctive taste - often described as like a pear drop.
There is some disagreement as to whether it is diploid or triploid. The doubt stems from its unreliable pollination. Therefore, ideally it should have two pollination partners to maximise the chances of setting fruit.
Ultimate size will be dictated by the rootstock chosen.

Most often described as a dessert apple but it is also used as a cooker and it is often used for juicing and in cider blends.
