Apple - Oxfordshire Heritage


Mid September



Planting Position


Another of the apples raised by F.W. Wastie of Eynsham, Oxfordshire, by crossing Allington Pippin with Golden Spire, in 1922. It was first recorded when received by the National Fruit Trials in 1943 and was named by his son, J.F. Wastie, after his own wife. It is a crisp, very juicy, tangy, sweet and fragrant dessert apple, with a hint of attar of roses. Apples are ripe in September and keep into November. The pale golden yellow skin is blushed red and dotted and in sunny and hot years the apples can be largely covered with red.
