Keswick Codlin apple

/KEH-zik KOD-lin/

A variety of yellow apple which is good for both eating and cooking. It is thought to have been found on a rubbish heap at Gleaston Castle not far from Ulverston in Lancashire and was noted in 1793, having been introduced commercially by Mr J Saunders of Keswick. It cookes to a purée so is good for sauces. Early-season apple is harvested from mid-August in South-East England and may be stored until October.
