Found in Lancashire in about 1850. Introduced by Richard Smith, nurseryman, of Worcester. In Gloucestershire, where it was grown as a cider apple, it is known as Tom Matthews.

Quite widely grown in the late 19th century and also recommended as a decorative tree due to its weeping habit.

A distinctly shaped, tall, oblong apple. Light green becoming golden yellow when fully ripe.

Deep cream flesh with quite intense, almost cidery flavour. Sharp and juicy. Cooks to a yellow puree, slightly brisk and well flavoured.
