Eater. Lincolnshire apple, raised by Rev C C Ellison, Bracebridge and Mr Wipf, head gardener at Hartshorne Hall. Introduced by Pennels of Lincoln in 1911.
Intense flavour, with aniseed nature when ripened after picking. Much planted before WW2. Very short season in October. Still a popular garden apple. Trees at Elcho are almost pendulous in form and very prolific in 2013. There is a red form.
