Betty Geeson apple

/BEH-tee JEE-suhn/

A sweet, yellow variety of apple which cooks and eats well. It possibly arose in Worcestershire and is first recorded in 1854. It is a late-season apple, harvested from late September in South-East England and is at its best from October to December. Retains its shape when it is cooked so is good for pies and tarts.
