Katy apple


A name for Katja, a very attractive crisp apple with good flavour raised in 1947 at the Balsgård Fruit Breeding Institute in Sweden as a cross between James Grieve and Worcester Pearmain. It is pale green, ripening to yellow, flushed with bright scarlet and flecked with deeper red. It was renamed in England by Sir James Mount. It has poor keeping properties, like its Worcester Pearmain parent. It provides good, almost strawberry-flavoured juice. Early-season apple is harvested from early September in South-East England and has poor storage properties.
