Graham apple


A name for Royal Jubilee, a large variety of yellow-skinned cooking apple raised by Mr John Graham of Hounslow in Middlesex in 1888. It was introduced commercially in 1893, the Jubilee year of Queen Victoria, hence its name. It retains its shape when it is cooked, making it good for tarts. This mid-season variety is harvested from late September in South-East England and is at its best from October to December.
