Apple Kilkenny Pearmain

Irish heritage variety of dual-purpose apple, grown in Ireland since the 19th century. Large, attractive apple, greenish-yellow, flushed orange-red with red stippling. As an eating apple, sharp, crisp, with a mild flavour, sweetening and becoming less juicy as it ripens after picking; also a good baking apple.

Apples need thinning for larger fruit. Fruit holds well on the tree.
