History and description of Katy

Raised from James Grieve x Worcester Pearmain at the Fruit Breeding Institute, Balsgard, Sweden 1947. Its correct original name in Swedish is Katja, but it is generally known in the UK as Katy. It was introduced in 1966. Grown commercially in Sweden and on a small scale in the UK.

Medium sized, conical apple. An attractive fruit with a bright red flush over pale green skin ripening to pale yellow. White, juicy flesh. Sweet but with plenty of balancing acidity. Fair flavour with a hint of strawberry. Good for juice. Does not keep going soft soon after picking.

Fairly vigorous tree. Crops very well. Heavy crops must be thinned to avoid small fruit. A good early garden dessert variety.
