Large round bright green skin, crisp, sweet tasty/acid tangy flavour.  Great dessert apple when left on the trees to fully ripen, when the skin goes yellow with a browny tinge, and the flesh goes super sweet and juicy.  

Ripens April-May.

Also great used for cooking, juicing drying and storing.

Originally from the settlement and huge orchards planted at Port Albert (on the Kaipara Harbour) by the Albertlanders from Germany.
