Product Details

Strange to say, delicious to eat!

You definitely wont find one of these in the supermarket

Originating in the town of Boskoop, Holland in the 1850's, this apple is fondly remembered by many Europeans. An apple with distinct character it has orange/red russet skin with a firm flesh that is creamy and fully flavoured almost tart when picked but mellows and sweetens after harvest. So if you can be patient, it will only get better with time. Excellent eaten, cooked (holds it's flesh) and stores well. Perfect all rounder - those Dutch know a good thing when they find it. Resistant to black spot.
