Belle de Boskoop
Eater & cooker. Discovered in the nursery district of Boskoop near Gouda , Netherlands, in 1856 by K J W Ottolander. Widely grown in Holland, Germany & Belgium. Award of merit, RHS, in 1897. You can buy it in the markets of France and Belgium. My young cordon has given me a bucketful of delicious, large, firm, and juicy fruit every year so far. It’s a lovely apple, maybe it should be more widely grown?
