A very prolific late culinary apple, raised in 1862, which has many attributes – the grass-green fruit have a fine flavour and stay intact when cooked; the tree is very hardy and suitable for the North; good resistance to scab and succeeds well on wet soils.  Thin the fruit in June for the best sized apples.  Self-fertile.
