Golden Spire




Golden Spire was intrroduced in the Victorian period, primarily as a cooking apple. It was discovered in Lancashire but spread to Gloucestershire where it was known as Tom Matthews and grown for cider production.

It remains popular in England as a garden variety, and is notable for its distinctive cider-like flavour. The flesh is juicy and it cooks to a puree with an excellent flavour.
