Ideally this should come from the same pollination group however it is possible to use one from group A or C as well.
This charming deciduous tree is covered in pure white cup-shaped flowers in mid- to late spring followed by firm sweet crimson-streaked golden-yellow dessert apples ripening in September. It produces a heavy crop of fruit with a faint strawberry flavour which are best eaten soon after picking. Offers good resistance to mildew.
