Large round bright green skin, crisp, sweet tasty/acid tangy flavour. Great dessert apple when left on the trees to fully ripen, when the skin goes yellow with a browny tinge, and the flesh goes super sweet and juicy.
Also great used for cooking, juicing drying and storing.
Originally from the settlement and huge orchards planted at Port Albert (on the Kaipara Harbour) by the Albertlanders from Germany.
