Raised in 1947 in Sweden (Katja). Cross between James Grieve and Worcester Pearmain. Attractive bright rosy-red fruit, juicy, crisp and pleasant flavour with a hint of strawberries. Regular heavy cropper. Very hardy variety. Good for eating and juicing.
The variety has been used by the somerset cider company Thatchers for nearly 20 years to produce the popular, crisp and refreshing, single fruit variety cider 'Katy'. Suitable for colder areas and is more resistant to frost.

Crab apples such as Golden Hornet and John Downie also are good pollinators for all apples. In areas where there are many apple trees already growing it may not be necessary to plant an extra pollinator.
