Apple varieties

  • Zabergau Reinette Apple
    German russet-style apple, but sharper than Egremont Russet, tastes of nettles when straight from the tree. Keeps for 3-4 months.
  • An attractive modern commercial apple variety, related to Delcorf and Elstar.
  • Zestar! Apple
    Early season apple with a good crisp sweet-tart flavor.
  • Flavored with tones of wild strawberry, quince, pineapple, ripe pear and a fine floral touch. Rough sticky skin flushed brown-red with faint red stripes and some russeting. Fine grained flesh.
