Eater. Raised by Storrie of Glencarse , Perthshire, before 1883. Blood red, flesh containing pink streaks when ripe.
Several stories of its origin: one, that a ploughman was shot by a gamekeeper on the Megginch estate, while he was scrumping. His wife threw the bag of apples on a rubbish heap, and several seedlings grew, the first of this variety. There is a green and red clone of this, we, of course, only sell the blood red clone!
