A British native eating apple that can be consumed straight from the tree, Malus domestica Laxton's Superb is a heavy-cropping, late-season, dessert variety dating from 1897. The tree produces pink-tinged white blossoms in spring. The fruit is greenish-yellow with rosy red flushing and striping in early autumn, firm and sweet to eat.
