A large, dry baking-apple which has greenish-yellow skin flushed to orange-brown. It was raised in Slough in Berkshire by Charles Turner in 1900 and in 1912 was named Turner's Prolific, changed in 1915 to Arthur Turner. It received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Merit in 1912. It cooks to a yellow purée. This is an early-season apple, picked from September in South-East England, is stored and is at its best between September and November and retains good flavour when it is cooked.
