Gourmets regard this delectable, striped, orange-red beauty as one of the finest apples of all. Classic English variety is firm, crisp, juicy and richly aromatic, with spicy hints. Medium-sized fruits are perfect dessert apples, and the best choice for homemade apple cider. High-yielding trees with prominent side-branching produce excellent fruit in cooler summer climates. One of the best apples for espalier: edible landscaping at its juiciest. Mid-season. Pollinazer is required, best with Apple Golden Delicious.
