This is said by some to be the best English cooking apple. It is a large early cooker with a striking appearance; almost spherical, has completely smooth skin, green to begin with which goes to a lovely golden yellow. By this time, late Sept to mid Oct, the apple can almost be eaten raw. It does not keep more than 2-3 weeks, which is its main disadvantage. Its other drawback is a tendency to go biennial (cropping mainly in alternate years).
