- Price: £15.50
A very early dessert apple best eaten off the tree from late July. Very good flavour, sweet and juicy. Surface almost all covered deep or brick red. Medium sized apples round conical with some broad ribbing. Originated in 1780 but renamed in 1883 after the then Prime Minister.
To enjoy its flavour the best pick while still on the tree and the apples are not too deep red. Apples that have fallen can be soft and unappealing.
