Eater. Raised by James Grieve from a seed of Pott’s Seedling. Introduced by Dickson’s Nursery, Edinburgh in c1910, where Grieve was manager.
Heavy cropping, (I get 150 fruits every year), it’s ‘sweet/sharp’ and juicy; not a keeper, unless you can pick very good specimens. Very reliable and precocious variety, but a relatively short lived tree. We also sell a red form for our occasional poor summers. It is highly praised as a cross in many hybridising programmes (e.g. Katy). I disagree that it’s a cooker as well.
