Indeterminate. Cordon. Our donor's father and grandfather before him had grown this variety (since around 1926) in their market garden at Carriden, Bo'ness, West Lothian to sell as plants and, later in the season, fruit. It has a slender stem so will require sound supports and is primarily a glasshouse variety. The round, medium-sized, richly flavoured fruits are at their best, according to our donor, when slightly under-ripe with thin, deep orange skins that have a green blush at the stem-end.
