Raised from grafts taken from the original tree which was raised from a pip planted by Mary Ann Brailsford in Nottingham,UK and is still bearing fruit. This means that this cultivar is true to type.
Produces large green apples with red stripes that have firm yellow flesh. They are acid and are an excellent cooking apple which fall into a moist smooth textured puree when cooked.
It is triploid which means that it is extremely vigorous and that it requires two pollination partners to set fruit.
Its final height will depend upon the rootstock, however it will be at the top end of the height potential of whichever rootstock it is on. An unpruned example on an MM106 rootstock may reach 5.5m.
