Large, round apple. Dark red skin. Crisp firm texture. Good flavour. Sweet but with slight sharpness.
From Dawn O’Leary near Silverdale. Chance seedling. Her father had apple orchard when she was a child and she reckons its a good one and not like others she knows.
Now one of our favourites. Great dessert apple, fantastic cooker and stores quite well.
