A firm baker, makes a well-flavoured golden puree, needing hardly any sugar. A good candidate for early pies as it can be picked green for early use. Known for its exceptional display of attractive light pink blossom in the spring. Good disease resistance with resistance to scab and is reliable in northern areas. A great garden variety and rather popular with commercial growers!
