Description

English Discovery Apples. The fruits are typically similar in appearance to its parent ‘Worcester Pearmain’, being small-medium in size, with small patches of yellow and largely flushed with crimson, sometimes completely covering the fruit,[6] but tend to be slightly flatter. The flesh (and juice) of some fruit may be pinkish. The tree is a mid-season flowering variety; as with the supposed pollinator ‘Beauty of Bath’, the fruits mature quickly, by August. Unlike many early apples, the fruits remain on the tree long enough to ensure ripening. Although most references state that this is an early producing tree, the best fruits can be harvested later in the year: from late August to October the fruits become deep pinkish-red and the flesh is also pink. Excellent flavour, good eater and good cooker. Under good conditions the apples, when fresh, have a sweet, lightly acidic taste with a slight strawberry flavour. They generally have good keeping qualities
