History and description of Edward VII

Believed to have been raised from a Blenheim Orange X Golden Noble. First recorded 1902. Received RHS Award of Merit in 1903. Introduced by Rowe, Barbourne Nurseries, Worcester, in 1908. Awarded 1st Prize for best new culinary variety in 1909. Only grown commercially on a very small scale but a popular garden variety.

Medium to large sized fruit. Flat-round to round shape, slightly ribbed and puckered. Bright green becoming pale yellow. Smooth dry skin. Cream flesh, firm and fairly juicy. Cooks to a well-flavoured , translucent puree. Continues to develop a sweeter taste and then makes a brisk eating apple.

A tree of moderate vigour, upright, hardy. Good cropper. Scab resistant. Attractive pink blossom. Late flowering makes it suitable for locations prone to spring frosts.
