A mid to late-season variety of dual-purpose apple with creamy, white flesh. There are records of it before 1884 and it was raised by Thomas Laxton in Lincolnshire as a cross between Cox's Orange Pippin and King of the Pippins. Its first name was South Lincoln Pippin but it was renamed in 1896. It was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society First Class Certificate in 1894 under the name of Brown's South Lincoln Beauty. It ripens from sharp flavoured with good cooking qualities in November and is a late-season apple picked from early October in South-East England, is stored and is at its best from November to December.
