Ready for picking in October. The very large, round, shiny red fruit is evenly shaped and has a very polished appearance. The flavour is superb, with a very juicy crisp flesh. The trees are moderately vigorous, but have a neat, compact growth. Also excellent for chalky soils, the north and west and has a resistance to Scab. The fruits are of outstanding beauty and are like eating a superb large Cox. A favourite eating variety for many years. A very regular cropper. Suitable pollinators are: Greensleeves, James Grieve, Spartan, Gloster 69, Howgate Wonder, Redsleeves etc.
