Gibbs, Aldenham, England, 1924
In comparison to the species 'Gibbsii' has branches that ascend at an angle, eventually causing a dense spherical crown to form. The smooth grey trunk is somewhat grooved at the base and the olive-green twigs bear lenticels. Older twigs turn a chocolate brown. The bottom half of the ovoid leaves is pinnate with 2 - 4 pairs of leaflets, while the upper half is lobed. The upper side of the leaves is matt dark green; the underside is greyish-white with hairs. The abundant white flowers emerge in May in umbels measuring approx. 10 cm. The remarkably large fruits emerge from August onwards; they turn from green to coral red. They remain in the tree for a long time. 'Gibbsii' is a vigorous grower and is practically insensitive to bacterial fire blight. Is reasonably resistant to hard surfaces.
