Sweet Red

This apple is an old variety we pick each year at the Apple Farm in Fairfield.   No one seems to know its origin or even its real name.  The trees were there in the orchard when Steve and Marilyn Meyerhans purchased the farm 40 years ago. We’re on a full court press to identify the variety.  We have some hunches but nothing definite yet.  The apple has practically no acidity to it, so it may taste strange if you take a bite right off the tree or out of the bag.  Some OOAL crew have been fans , however, so give it a taste.  Use it for cooking, and add it to your cider.
