Adams' Pearmain apple


A variety of dark crimson, striped, nutty, medium-sized, conical eating apple covered with a fine grey-brown russet, raised in England, probably in Norfolk by Mr R Adams, or possibly Herefordshire, where it is known as Hanging Pearmain. It was introduced commercially in 1826. It is a late-season apple harvested from early- to mid-October in South-East England, is stored, and is at its best between November and March. In the United States it is harvested in mid- to late October.
