In early August this apple is a delight. The bright red apples adorn the trees and reward the pickers with a good flavoured apple with attractively pink stained flesh. This apple arose with market gardeners near Bath in Somerset in the 1860s and the fruit has a tendency to fall from the tree when ripe, so farmers traditionally laid straw beds to catch them. The fruit is best eaten the day it is picked, and is definitely not one to keep, but the surplus can be turned to juice that maintains a lovely pink tinge.
Flowering group C (Early-Mid)
