Originating from Canada, 1926. The first apple to arise out of the new scientific breeding programme. A good eater with characteristic McIntosh apple ‘vinous’ flavour.
Discovered in Oxon, England, 1740. Became widely grown in England throughout the 19th Century but is a rare variety today. An eater and cooker. Cooks to a stiff puree.
Kent, England, 1972. A Cox Orange Pippin and Ida Red Cross. The flavour is fundamentally sweet but with much of the rich complexity of Cox.
