History and description of Golden Noble
Discovered by Patrick Flanagan, gardener to Sir Thomas Hare of Stowe Hall in an old orchard at
Downham, Norfolk, UK. Flanagan exhibited the fruit at the London Horticultural Society in 1820. A
popular variety in Victorian and Edwardian England grown commercially until the 1930's. It still
remains a popular garden variety.
Large handsome round fruit. Pale green skin ripening to golden yellow. Occasional pink flush. Cream
coloured flesh with high vitamin C content. Good sharp flavour needing little added sugar. Ideal for
apple pies as it keeps some of its shape when cooked. Keeps well losing some of its sharpness such
that it can be used as a dessert apple in the spring.
A moderately vigorous tree. Good disease resistance other than fireblight to which it is
susceptible. Partial tip bearer. Attractive blossom.
