Golden Noble is a marvellous multi-purpose apple variety, almost completely forgotten. It has been cropping in my daughter’s garden for years. It is indeed golden in appearance and noble in character. It dates from around the early 1800s. If grown well it makes a good sized apple. Pick it by the middle of September, store it in a cool place and it will keep until December time in good order. You can cook it or eat it.
Once planted it begins to crop very quickly. Very little trouble in growing it as it looks well after itself. It does like enough moisture around its roots. Therefore do not plant it in a bed of grass or weeds. It originates from Downham Market in Norfolk.
