Lots of these at Osborne House, Isle of Wight. Raised c1840 by Thomas Squire, Berkhamsted, Herts.
Possibly Nonpareil x Dumelow's Seedling. It resembles Dumelow's quite closely. Cooker; cooks to
lemon coloured puree. Not so acidic as Bramley. Fruit bruises easily. Tree is spreading, with the fruit
produced profusely in layers; green skin, shiny, turning yellow. Some red stripes at top of tree
or in sun.
