Redfleshed Apples - Rosette

This is a striking redfleshed apple from England available from "Orangepippin".

It may be related to Discovery but it has a richer flavour and less acidity. It's a very pleasant apple, ready about 1 Sept.

It produces a pale pink flower, fading to white, rather than the deep red one might expect from a redfleshed variety.

First picture shows the newly grafted tree with its solitary apple; very unusual to get a fruit in the same year as grafting.

Vitamin C determination should be done next year. Notice the close resemblance in shape and colour to 'Discovery'.
