Winter. Originated on the farm of Joseph Hayward, Sterling, MA. Introduced later by Ephraim Robbins, Leominster, MA, before 1855. Very rare.
Whitish flesh is crisp, tender, juicy and subacid. Recommended for fresh eating. Medium-large angular roundish-oblate fruit is greenish-yellow, white-spotted and orange-blushed. Often presents netted russeting.
Probably dates to well before 1850, maybe even to the time when our first president was considered by some to be royalty. Another variety rescued from the Tower Hill Collection. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
