- 23 Sep 2012 Darryl PlotnikoffBRITISH COLUMBIA, CanadaThis apple is a juicy sweet yellow-fleshed thin skinned apple. The apple is an attractive apple with red-orange stripes over a yellow background. The smaller apples have a tendancy to get waxy but the larger ones do not become waxy. They keep for 5 months in cold storage. We rate this apple a 5 out of 5.
