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.
