A tailor named George Kempster planted the original kernel and the apple, known locally as Kempster's Pippin, which began to be catalogued in about 1818. It received the Banksian Silver Medal in 1820 and thereafter spread through England to Europe and America.
This apple has a greenish-yellow to orange skin streaked with red. It has a distinctive nutty flavour excellent for cooking.
The vigorous tree is slow to come into crop but then produces heavily.
