Once a very important early variety in the UK. A very attractive brilliant red apple with very white sweet perfumed uncomplicated flavour. Worcester Pearmain, like Gravenstein were often picked too early to try and get better prices and so got a bad reputation. English Worcester, as it was called, originated in Worcester in 1874 probably the progeny of Devonshire Quarrenden. It's exceptional in that it has been the parent of many other apples - Lord Lambourne, Tydemans Early, Discovery, Merton Worcester and Akané. Worcester Pearmain is definitely part of English apple culture.
