This is not really suitable for very damp areas in the UK, due to its sensitivity to scab. In drier areas, the skin finish is appreciably better. Not self-fertile, it needs a pollinator. If picked too late, it will start rotting around the core . It should be picked by the end of August/early September. Quality fair to good.
