Originated 1883 from Scotland, UK

Description: This variety arose in 1883 in Carse of Gowrie in Scotland. Very red heavily ribbed fruit. Sweet, crisp and juicy. It is reputed to have got its name from a ploughman who was caught stealing apples on the Megginch estate and was shot by the gamekeeper. His wife got the bag of apples and threw them on the compost heap where a seedling then grew and was given its name.
