Have you seen this new apple yet? It's red to the core!
This new breed of apple is one of the first to have a completely red interior. The marketing claims that the apple will not turn brown when cut. It definitely retains its color when cooked — look at the photo above. It looks like quince! Lovely.
This cultivar was developed in Switzerland and is currently marketed by Suttons, a nursery in the UK. So far this apple is just available as a tree from Suttons. We don't know when or if the apple itself will make it into the market here in the US, but we hope it does. We'd love to try it.
