The original ‘Pilgrim 400’ tree was grown from a pip planted about 1970 in a residential garden in Southwell, Nottinghamshire. One of its near neighbours is the original Bramley Seedling tree. Fifty years later, the tree shows good disease resistance and is a regular cropper. It flowers mid-season and produces much fruit. Tree lovers in Nottinghamshire and Plymouth have been allowed to take material from the original tree by kind permission of the owner and are growing a number of young trees for the Mayflower commemorations in 2020.
