A name for Anne Elizabeth, a large, crisp, acid cooking apple with excellent storage qualities raised around 1857 in Leicester by Samuel Greatorex who named it after his daughter who died in 1868. The golden skin is flushed, striped and speckled with pinkish-red and it retains its shape when cooked. It gained the Royal Horticultural Society First Class Certificate in 1868. This apple also produces a pretty blossom. 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 April.
