A chance seedling found in 1890 by A.H. Mullins, Clay County, West Virginia, USA. Possibly from a seed of Grimes Golden open-pollinated. It was introduced in 1914 by Stark Brothers. Best ripened on the tree for a crisp, juicy sweet apple with an aromatic flavour. Ideal in a warmer climate. Cooks well being most commonly used apple in France for pastries. Keeps well.
