A very late medium sized culinary apple. Flat round in shape with some ribbing around the base. The light green / yellow skin is usually red flushed. When cooked the flesh has a rich yet sweet taste.
Introduced in 1854 by a Mr Davies of Pershore. This variety was grown widely in the Midlands as a commercial variety until it was superceded by other varieties including Bramley. Unlike another culinary apple of the area, Catshead, Betty Geeson is of slower growth so we offer it just on M25 rootstock. An excellent addition to any traditional orchards or where a different cooking apple desired.
