I love the taste of the Paula Red Apple. Where can I purchase Paula Red Apple trees?

I have this variety and find that the taste matures a bit after picking. Tart or tasteless at first give it some time and it is sweet and juicy.

I found this variety to be my best quality apple. It ripens early and produces a sweet tasting apple. It also lasts well after picking.

An acceptable apple. Main advantage is early harvest. Softer fleshed, less tart and less complex than I like.

I enjoyed this apple. It has a slight tartness with an enjoyable flavor. The taste had a bit of pear in it for me. This variety does have some characteristics that I don't like in an apple. The skin is on the tough side and so far all the ones I've had (from one source to this point) are soft fleshed. This is not a crisp apple, the flesh is pushing the edge of mealy. Overall I will buy this apple again because I think the flavor is worth it.

The one I had, though nicely colored, was very tart. I usually like tart apples, but I cannot recommend this apple.

One of the better early season eating apples. Small to medium apple, taste is mild.
