Tydeman's Early Red
This English apple, also called Tydeman's Early Worcester, comes from a McIntosh x Worcester Pearmain cross. It was developed in Kent, England by H.M. Tydeman. The apple ripens in late summer before either of its parents. The medium-large fruit has shiny, dark red skin and a mild, sweet flavor. The flesh is juicy and firm but not crisp. It can be eaten as a dessert fruit soon after picking. Good for applesauce. This apple is not a keeper so use it quickly.
