The Cornish Gilliflower is a cultivar of apple.

The cultivar was found in a cottage garden in Truro, Cornwall and in 1813 was brought to the attention of the Royal Horticultural Society by Sir Christopher Hawkins, who was awarded a silver medal “for his exertions”.[1][2] The word ‘gilliflower’ is possibly a corruption of a French word girofle meaning clove, believed to be a reference to its odour when cut. The leaves are small and the tree is not a strong grower. It ripens in October.[3]
