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.
