In a good year the flavour can be excellent - a rich pear-drop note to the firm flesh.

 

How to grow

Cornish Aromatic is well-suited to the mild wet climate of the Cornish peninsula, and is generally a good choice for areas with wet climates because of its natural resistance to scab, a disease which is more prevalent in wetter areas. However to get the best flavour try to plant it in a spot that gets maximum sunshine.
