Very firm very late dessert apple, appearance resembling MM106 very closely, but harder and sweeter; less acidity. Hangs on tree until early Jan; sometimes mid Feb, in good condition. Completely frost-proof. Sweet, white flesh, firm texture, becoming dry into early Spring. These apples keep extremely well; April, May or even later without gas storage. In 2009 I had a dozen left in June, still good; some picked in October and some in January. The January ones were slightly more juicy.
