History

The original tree was found growing wild on the island of Bardsey in 1998. It was subsequently popularised by local nurseryman Ian Sturrock, and identified as a unique new variety by experts at the UK National Fruit Collection. More information about the discovery of this fascinating variety and its cultivation can be found on the Bardsey website.
