Warner’s King Apple

Apple

Description: Warners King is a very large, old cooking apple. It's fruit is pale green, turning pale yellow with slight brown-purple flush. Flesh is white, tinged green. Rather soft, a little coarse-textured, juicy and very acid. Cooks to a sharp, strongly flavoured purée, mellows with keeping.

History: Originated probably from Kent, England. Known since the late 1700s. Sent by Warner to Rivers, who gave it the distinguishing prefix. Received an Award of Garden Merit in 1993 from the Royal Horticultural Society. One of the most popular Victorian cookers, grown in gardens all over the UK for markets and decoration.
