Bess Pool Apple
Late Dessert Apple
Bess Pool discovered this apple in Nottingham in 1824. This is a very late flowering apple and so avoids frosts. It may be picked in October and will keep until February. It is a tip-bearer and has a broad spreading habit. The fruit is almost dull crimson, with some russetting and short, broad dark red stripes. The flesh is greenish, coarse and rather dry and the skin becomes waxey in store.
