The earliest to ripen of the Irish varieties. A juicy and tangy bite. Tip-bearing tree often chosen for its ornamental appeal when flowering. Brightly coloured fruit are nicely displayed in a weeping fashion. Minimum pruning required – initially shape the tree with structure starting higher than normal, to allow for the weeping and spreading effect later. Thought to have originated in Co. Sligo as part of the ‘Crofton’ collection.

Flowering: Early Season
Picking: Early (August)
