Discovered by chance in 1918. Late dessert apple thought to be progeny of Cox Orange Pippin. Large fruit is highly aromatic with a flavor of Cox and good sugar acid balance with a firm, juicy, creamy flesh. Trees are vigorous with a spreading nature and produce many fruiting spurs. Very good for cooking, as well as for fresh eating. Great keeper, able to retain its qualities for a full five to six months after harvest if properly refrigerated. One of the favorites at apple tastings. Triploid.
