Daliclass apple

Daliclass is modern apple, developed in France, and closely related to Elstar.  As might be expected the flavour is excellent, with more acidity than is usually found in Elstar.

The cream-coloured flesh is crisp, light rather than dense, coarse-grained, and very juicy.

The apples are a good size, with the red / orange flush over a yellow background which is currently considered the best colour for supermarket apples.

      Lovely sweet/sharp taste for a British Apple but the skin is unpalatable tough. For a pleasant eating experience peeling is required.
