I posted the following discussion on the NAFEX listserv in 2004:
A friend moved to Seattle from Denmark a number of years ago. About 30 years ago he returned from a trip back home with some scionwwod. Although this apple came from a home orchard in Denmark, it is thought to originally be a French apple. It has red streaks over pink background with white flesh. The apples are small. The one I tasted was about 2 inches in diameter. It ripens in Seattle in early September. It has a nice balance of sugar and acid. It has a unique taste, possibly a cider apple. My Danish friend knows it as "Pigshon". I think this may be a corruption of "Pigeonnet" which is a class of apples grown in France.
