An old Norfolk apple; suitable for small gardens. Reliable cropper; does not go biennial. Fruit keeps all through the winter. Suitable as cooker; ok as eater later on in the season. In storage, when individual apples decompose, the rot is dry and doesn't spread. The name comes from the village (Metton, Norfolk) where it originated. About three trees survive.
