Peasgood's Nonsuch is a good-looking traditional English cooking apple from the Victorian era. As the name suggests, it was raised by Mrs Peasgood of Stamford, Lincolnshire - probably in the middle of the 19th century. The apples ripen mid-season and can be kept for a few weeks, filling the gap before the late-season cooking apples become available.
Peasgood's Nonsuch has all the qualities expected in a traditional English cooker - large size, plenty of juice, and a sharp tangy flavour. The coarse light flesh readily cooks down to a puree - regarded as a desirable feature in English cookery.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.
