I have just found a new favorite apple! First year it produced in my organic heirloom apple orchard--and, wow, really delicious and crisp! Has just the right amount of sweet/tart tang, love it!

Regent is my favorite apple. They're sweet, but not too sweet, like I think Red Delicious are. They're crisp, but not as crisp & hard-fleshed as Honeycrisp. I enjoy eating them--I use other varieties to cook with, but I save my Regents to simply eat. :)

I was not impressed with the flavor for fresh use, just my opinion. However, I feel it makes the best apple pie I have ever eaten. Great apple for cooking.
