A strong flavored, zesty apple that tends to be smaller in size. The intense flavor reminds us of the sweet tart candy we used to get as kids. First introduced in Germany in the 1930’s, this apple results from a cross of Cox’s Orange Pippen and Duchess of Oldenburg. It has cream colored flesh and is crisp when first picked, but does not store well. This is an apple often seen in Europe, but rarely in the United States. Picks in early September.
