This must be the world's most revered apple, originating in Buckinghamshire England in 1825, thought to be an offspring of Ribston Pippin. There are many different cultivars of this apple, and this one is one of the oldest - very tasty but smaller fruit with russeted yellow/orange skin. Crisp juicy flesh when ripe, with a richness that is difficult to describe except it has all the qualities that make it amazing and memorable. This one's seeds rattle when ripe, hence the name!
Sweet, acid, with depth of flavour - a complex flavour that other apples are compared to: 'Oh yes, it tastes a bit like a cox's', and has become a benchmark against which all others are measured.
