All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Holly apple

Large outstandingly beautiful apple has the color of the holly berry. Its shape is conic, sometimes having a blockish appearance. The glossy skin is evenly blushed with pinkish to deep, solid red. The creamy white flesh is mild in flavor, juicy and quite sweet, similar to Delicious. It keeps well until January. Fruit hangs well on the tree.

    Very good apple nicely sweet with just the right amount of tartness. I never heard of this apple before today. I bought it at Whole Foods. It has a unique flavor and will buy again.
