Thought to have been raised by William Crump, head gardenerÂ at Madresfield Court. It was first exhibited in 1915 and was then introduced by J. Carless of Worcester.
It received an Award of Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1915.
Fruits are large and conical having a firm, coarse-textured flesh, juicy with a sweet and pleasant aromatic flavour. In a good sunny spot they will ripen to a bright red over a green skin. As a tree it is claimed by some to be a rather shy cropper, butÂ it has beenÂ found to crop well as a garden tree.
