Charles Ross is a large versatile English apple, which can be eaten fresh but is also good as a baking apple, and for apple tarts which require sliced apple.
The apples ripen mid-season and are very attractive, and look great in the fruit bowl. They store fairly well but the flavor and juice tend to fade.
