Unique Seedlings - Durrant's Apple

This is a very sweet, small, late apple discovered in a hedgerow in Norfolk a few years ago. It has a strong, refreshing flavour reminiscent of Parma violets with a hint of astringency. It keeps well and is relatively unaffected by frost. The blossom is unusually pretty. It is in flower at about the same time as Tom Putt, Eden Crab and Devonshire Quarrenden, i.e. rather early. The fruit is a dullish brindled colour similar to that of West Virginia Beauty. It ripens late and often keeps in good condition until mid November.

It would make an ideal child's apple.
