Enjoy these unique, red-fleshed apples in your yard or landscape. They bear abundant crops of fruit, which makes a tasty and attractive addition to salads, are good for baking and make delicious pink applesauce and juice. Of course, they are also great for fresh eating too. Fine ornamentals as well, they are prized for their beautiful pink flowers.

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.
