Originated 1819 from Kilkenny, Ireland

Description: A fine quality early dessert apple, that was very popular in Victorian and Edwardian times. Also known as Early Crofton, this was raised in Ireland and introduced into England in 1819 by the Kilkenny nurseryman John Robertson. Pale yellow with orange-red flushing, this is best eaten straight off the tree when it has a lovely rich flavour, plenty of juice and is deliciously aromatic. The tree itself is moderately vigorous, slightly spreading in habit and a pure tip-bearer.
