An interesting apple that is conical in shape with distinct ribbing. Its blood red skin is a little tough, beneath it the sweet tasting flesh is heavily pink tinged.
Name also has a story behind it - apparently a ploughman was caught by a gamekeeper stealing apples on a Scottish estate and shot. His wife had the apples but threw them on a rubbish tip and one of the apples pips arose to be this variety! (central Scotland, 1883)
