Dumelow's Seedling was originally raised in Shakerston, near Ashby-de-la-Zouche, by a Richard Dumeller. Supposedly from a pip of Northern Greening. It found its way to London via Gopsall Hall, and was exhibited in 1818 as Dumelow's Crab. It was promptly renamed Wellington, in honour of the great man. It's also - confusingly - known as Normanton Wonder. Awarded RHS AGM in 1993. 


The Victorians regarded this as one of the very top cooking apples. It keeps well, bakes well, and even looks well, with attractive blossom. Its offspring include Newton Wonder and Monarch.
