4 Aug 2013.... first fruit, shown in the third and fourth fruit pictures below. The apple is unusually fragrant, with a pleasant aroma of 'apple' but also with a hint of rose blossom. The flavour - almost complete absence of acid, sweet, very soft texture, (would not keep for more than a day or two), delicate flavour. Very early to fruit; second apple of the year in the collection of 100 or so apples; 2 days after Hall's Pink.
