    Yes, it is delicious. Not as good as the Mcintosh but passable. I love it's white flesh and how the deep red skin bleeds into the flesh when you cut into it or take a bite.

    I like this apple between the green and ripe stage with its crispey tannery fast I also like it when it has mellowed and taken on the taste that gives its name
