I planted my Haral Red in the spring of 2016. It has about 70 large half red hald green apples on it today. They are baseball size. Very sweet and tart. I am wondering what they will taste like after a frost.

Our Haralred tree is about 8 years old and bore a good crop of apples this year. Our location is borderline zone 2/3 in north central Minnesota. Beautiful tree, fruit excellent for pies, and we wait till just before a freeze to harvest - after several light frosts.

Haralred ripens late fall here in the coldest place in Oregon. The apples are pretty small (2.5-3"), but that is because we have a very short season. They are too tart to eat when harvested (before the really, really hard freezes in late October), but sweeten up beautifully after about a month in storage, and keep till the following June. The flavor is intense sweet-tart.

I was born and raised in MN. I bought a dwarf tree in MN and brought it down to TN in 1996 or 1997. It is a wonderful all around apple. Excellent for pies, and I am sure for sauces, canning etc. (I have never canned apples here in TN - but back home in MN I canned applesauce and this would make a great sauce. Wonderfully tart and very flavorful in pies, my friends love the pies.

Selection of Red Haralson. Earlier, redder, and sweeter, without the common russeting problem many Haralsons have. Juicy, tart, firm flesh. Good keeper. Haralred is the tradename, the variety name is Lautz.
