    These little (golf ball sized) apples carry loads of flavor and taste more like candy than fruit. I bet they would be popular in lunch boxes for young children.

    This is one of the tastiest apples I have ever eaten. Gets sweeter as it gets deeper golden but never loses the tang.

    I rated a 4 out of 5. This was the first and only apple in my two year orchard this year. It was small and heavily mottled. It was sweet and tangy. In the future when the tree is more mature and producing more, perhaps it will resemble more the description here, and my opinion will change?

    Has any one experience the leaves curling at the tips of all branches with Ananas Reinette? Mine started about a week ago (noticed about 13 June).

    Hello! My Ananas Reinette has been in the ground 6 months now and growing well. Do you plan to grow or do you grow this apple? Mike
