Swiss Gourmet is a sweet, aromatic apple that isn’t commonly found in supermarkets, but is loved by consumers in Europe. Known as Swiss Gourmet in the United States, this variety is called Arlet in Europe. This is one a variety we have the most difficulty describing to consumers. Many people would call it sweet, but we have a number of folks that say it is tart. It truly seems to strike each persons taste buds in a unique way. Arlet is picked in late September or early October.
