Falstaff apple was raised by Dr F Alston, East Malling Research Station, Kent, UK 1965 from
X Golden Delicious. Grown
commercially in continental Europe and on a very small scale in the
Medium sized, oblong-conical fruit. Red flush and stripes over smooth
yellow skin. Very attractive looking but colouring may be poor in less
sunny parts of the UK. Very crisp, juicy flesh. Pleasant refreshing, fruity
flavour with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. A good dessert
variety also useful for juice making. Keeps its crispness well in storage.
Moderately vigorous trees. Heavy cropping, partially self-fertile variety.
Good resistance to late frosts. A good garden variety.
