Red Ellison apple


A variety of eating apple found in 1948 by Mr HC Selby at Walpole St Peter near Wisbech in Cambridgeshire. It is medium-sized and golden yellow largely flushed blushed with crimson. This mid-season variety is harvested from mid- to late-September in South-East England and does not have good storage properties. Picked early it is crisp and bright, but it goes soft if left on the tree.
