An excellent apple in most years; highly variable appearance depending on the growing conditions. Very late
dessert fruit; leave on tree as long as possible. One year I picked these from a tree on M25 in the first week of January; they
were crisp and fresh, heavily russeted, and coloured pale green. This year they have had more sun,
lots of rain; the ones on MM106 are
red all over (some showing no russet at all) and almost ready now (18 November).
