- 20 Apr 2016 Ruby AllmanUnited StatesI grew up in east Tennessee, and I love Rusty Coat apples. They are crisp but tender, sweet with some tartness in perfect balance. I wish I had a tree, but I don't think it would flourish in south Florida.

Email: email@example.com Please check ahead to confirm availablility. I purchased on Nov. 6, 2014 to taste. They are good eating out of hand, seems to be a balanced flavor - between sweet and tart - maybe a bit towards the tart, unique ugly exterior
