I participated in a thread a few months ago where I brought up fun foods... one of them being a particular type of apple.





For those of you that asked for seeds, I've your addresses down and will be home in about a week.

They are ready to harvest.

So expect them in the USA at the beginning of October... those that asked overseas I have no idea but I'll pay the postage and we'll see where it goes.

For those of you who are puzzled about the thread, I'm sorry.

Came expecting this to be a Mac vs. PC debate. Was pleasantly surprised having never seen such a thing before.

That's pretty cool!

I've seen those last year in my local grocery....cannot remember the name.
Are they heirlooms?
They were pretty darn tasty.....and the color was odd to eat.

Our problem is we compare everything to Honeycrisps.......

This particular kind is an heirloom that I have a small orchard of.

The patents on these have been bought up... England has been starting orchards since 2012 and they are the next big thing on the market there... in the USA a few years afterwards.

Valentine apples, they are going to be marketed as.

Mine are called a Pink Parfait, the original seeds are from a tree planted in 1938 (pre-patent), the name has already been stolen and I make a habit every year to sent seeds out to people so they can grow them too.

When they get pollinated the self-pollinated apples are green on the outside, red on the inside.

The cross-pollinated ones are red on the outside, pink or mottled red/white on the inside.

It's an odd crusade of mine... on a thread a few months ago I asked who wanted some and got a list together to send to people.

Time's out for any more this year because I have about 240 to send.

I was just making sure that the people who messaged me didn't think I forgot.

Those look like some really reddish apples.

Do they taste good?

I ate some produce that looked good but did not taste good before, it seems kind of silly to breed them to look good, but not taste good. Like some of the seedless stuff, most is kind of hard to compare to there seed counterpart as a lot of the grocery store produce is so filled with preservatives so they can ship them world wide.

Taste-wise, they are sorta a cross between a Fuji and a Gala.

They make a rather good cider because they have a high sugar content.

The texture is crisp and crunchy... not mealy like a Honeycrisp.

I like them.

The ones I saw at the store were gre an out and pink inside.
i only saw them the one week and cannot imagine if the were similar or the same as yours.

If I knew someone who was interested, I'd let them know for next year.

So, can we call you Johnny Appleseed??

Those look wonderful! If they would be cold tolerant I would love to be on a future list if possible.

I'm extreme northwest Wisconsin, zone 2-3, it gets to -30f in winter, so maybe if i wrapped them for winter?

I just learned about the 'Arkansas Black' earlier this morning. It is too sour to eat when harvested, but after sitting in cold storage for months, it is said to be delicious.

4-8, from what I've seen so far.

Although I've a friend growing them in Pensacola, Florida.

Which is kinda an island of 9 in the middle of a 10.

Haha I clicked this thinking it was about Apple products,

I've never seen this type of apple before, what is it called? I know my aunt has two apple trees that are over 100 years old on her property in Virgina. I would love to have a basket of fresh off the tree apples!
