Hogg's Winter Greening apple


A name for French Crab, a green variety of cooking apple with spots of russet which was probably introduced commercially to England from France in the late 18th Century. It has very good keeping properties and cooks down to a sharply flavoured purée. This late-season variety is harvested from mid-October in South-East England and is at its best from December to June the following year.
