Originated in Devon. It was discovered by Mr Hill, a cider maker and nurseryman of Staverton, near Totnes, Devon. Known to have been in existence in the early 1920s. Trees are very vigourous and can therefore delay cropping. Fruits are medium sized with white flesh which often carries a red tinge especially in highly coloured fruits. Produces a medium-sharp, fruity but rather thin cider.
