An extremely old variety of apple tree which we pictured at
Hill Close Gardens
in Warwick in August 2008.
This variety is recorded in 1676 and as the name suggests, originates
from Devon. It's ripe early in the season for picking, mid-August is about right. It has a
distinctive fruity taste, definitely of strawberries.
We like this variety because the apples are a glorious scarlet red
over a yellow base, they look delicious. They produce apples when few
other trees can and of course they taste great. Just think, grow this
apple tree in your garden and you will be eating the same apples eaten
in the time of King Charles II!
