Golden Spire apple

/GOHL-duhn spighr/

A variety of soft, yellow cooking apple used in Gloucestershire for making cider as it has a high juice content. It was found around 1850 in Lancashire and introduced commercially by Richard Smith at a nursery in Worcester. It is almost rectangular in shape. It cooks down to a yellow purée. This mid-season variety is harvested from early September in South-East England and has poor keeping properties.
