A new red-skinned dessert apple that produces a heavy crop on a compact tree. The flesh has an unusual pink speckling (or 'rosette' pattern), which penetrates almost to the core. It looks very attractive when cut and it will certainly add interest to the cheese board.
- Garden care: Keep the base of the tree weed free, fertilise at the beginning of each year and water regularly during hot, dry spells. Remove damaged or crossing branches during the dormant season.
- Pollination Information: This apple belongs to pollination group B, so you will need to plant one other different variety of apple to guarantee cross pollination, and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group A or C as well.
