Fruit – Vegetable – Tropical Fruits
This variety came to be through a cross breeding Glockenapfel with Richared in 1969 at the fruit experimental station in Jork/Germany. The Gloster was seen as the the outstanding breed of the 1980’s, but for some years its sales have been in decline.
The Gloster is medium to large, conical, not completely regular and somewhat square-edged with green primary colour and crimson, laminar opaque colour.
It is a very juicy fruit with a greenish yellow flesh that is firm and mild with a gentle, acidic and discreet flavour.
They are ready from the middle of September.
The Gloster well particularly can be used roughly, since its flesh becomes only slowly brownish. Likewise it is well suited to fruit salads, desserts, strudels and sweets
