      I planted my Haral Red in the spring of 2016. It has about 70 large half red hald green apples on it today. They are baseball size. Very sweet and tart. I am wondering what they will taste like after a frost.

      Our Haralred tree is about 8 years old and bore a good crop of apples this year. Our location is borderline zone 2/3 in north central Minnesota. Beautiful tree, fruit excellent for pies, and we wait till just before a freeze to harvest - after several light frosts.

      Haralred ripens late fall here in the coldest place in Oregon. The apples are pretty small (2.5-3"), but that is because we have a very short season. They are too tart to eat when harvested (before the really, really hard freezes in late October), but sweeten up beautifully after about a month in storage, and keep till the following June. The flavor is intense sweet-tart.

      I was born and raised in MN. I bought a dwarf tree in MN and brought it down to TN in 1996 or 1997. It is a wonderful all around apple. Excellent for pies, and I am sure for sauces, canning etc. (I have never canned apples here in TN - but back home in MN I canned applesauce and this would make a great sauce. Wonderfully tart and very flavorful in pies, my friends love the pies.
