Originates from Worcester in the 1870s and almost immediately awarded an RHS First Class Certificate in 1875 - not surprising as this is a a truly excellent dessert apple and as with so many things Victorian still going strong 150 years later.
Fruit have a lovely bright red skin colour with an excellent sweet, juicy flesh with an intense strawberry flavour when fully red and in the deepest colour Cropping is in September and fruit are best eaten pretty much immediately - no hardship at all.
Awarded the RHS AGM in 1993 and reconfirmed in 2013
