The fruit tastes crisp and sweet. It has ample juice and a very aromatic flavour. The flesh is bright yellow and fleshy. The apples are a favourite snacking apple or can be used in cooking. The fruit often ripens early and should be ready for harvest during the month of October. If you want to increase the size of the apples then it is suggested that you cull the apples down to one per cluster.
