      Connell Red is a great apple. Our tree produces an abundance of sweet large red apples. They are excellent for eating and cooking. They're our favorite for fall eating.

      This is our favorite apple. Large, nicely formed, a complex sweet flavor. Very crisp. It makes a good cider and a nice pie.

      The Connell Red is sweet like a Delicious apple, but more flavorful and less mealy. It keeps well and cooks well. It is my favorite.
