Tydeman's Early (Worcester) apple

/TIGHD-munz UR-lee (WUS-tuh)/

A juicy, sweet scented, juicy eating apple similar to Worcester but redder, larger and less conical. It was raised by Mr HM Tydeman at East Malling Research Station in Kent in 1929 as a crossed between McIntosh and Worcester Pearmain. Like Worcester, at best it has a strawberry flavour. This early-season apple is harvested from late August in South-East England and has poor storage properties.
