Marie Doudou apple

Marie Doudou is a late-season apple which may have originated in northern France. It is considered a dual-purpose variety, with enough acidity for baking, but still sweet enough for eating fresh.

The medium-sized yellow / red apples are usually picked in October and will keep until January.
