A new variety which is interesting for its earliness, good flavour and heavy cropping.  Pollinators include Tom Cot, Wonder Cot and Magic Cot. The alleles for Lilly Cot are S8S10. Trees of Lilly Cot have a spreading growth habit.  First fruiting in 2nd leaf trees is very quick with good regular production after 4 years.  Fruit have a very good storage life.
