A great palate cleanser when eaten raw because of its punchy lemony flavour, but it really comes to life when cooked or juiced and adds that “old-timey” apple flavour.
Sometimes – though rarely – the mother tree still stands, as is the case with this apple. Mary Ann Brailsford first planted the seedling in Nottinghamshire in 1809, and it is resoundingly a long-lived cultivar.
