  • Dessert – a good, refreshing flavour from the crisp fruits
  • Pale green fruits, flushed red/orange.
  • Small / medium size, round / conical in shape.
  • Pick August / September. Not a keeper.
  • Self fertile so crops reliably. An excellent apple for this locality.

Raised by George Cave at Dovercourt in Essex in 1923, said to be a chance seedling.  Acquired by Messrs Seabrook and Sons Ltd not named until 1945.
