An old Essex variety dating back to the 1700s. Sweet yet acid taste. Gains a spicy flavour in hot dry summers. Apples appear flattened at either end and have quite distinct broad ribs from top to bottom. A russet with yellow-green skin and some brown flushing. Though the trees are of moderate vigour they are only small trees on the nursery.
