Lucy Rose Red Fleshed Apple

The darker skinned selection of the Lucy apples, Lucy Rose has deep red skin and bright red flesh and a strong berry flavor.

A very exciting red fleshed apple variety that came out of a breeding program in Washington state that was looking for apples with a deep red flesh but a sweet fresh eating flavor. They reportedly crossed red fleshed varieties with Honeycrisp to get these amazingly delicious new varieties that are called Lucy apples. We’re huge fans of red fleshed apples and are amazed at what a deep berry flavor both Lucy Glo and Lucy Rose have to them. You can taste the rich anthocyanin content of the flesh in your first bite!

Pests & Diseases: Apples can be affected by Apple Scab. Apple Scab is especially a problem in regions with wet springs, like we have in the Pacific Northwest. While it doesn’t seriously affect the eating quality of the fruit, it can cause black spots on the apples and foliage. Apple Scab can be controlled by sulfur and other sprays. Codling Moth can create wormy apples and aphids can damage the foliage of apple trees.
