Belle de Boskoop

malus-pumila-belle-de-boskoop-fruitA new-to-us variety that was introduced in the Netherlands in the 1850s. This heirloom apple has a yellow-green flesh, with a red “blush”, often combined with russeting, and has an overall lumpy appearance. This is a great multipurpose apple. It is sweet-tart, which makes it great for eating, and stays firm when cooked, making it a great cooking apple as well. Additionally, it is a great storing apple, and can last up to 6 months if kept cold! This apple is a mid to late season apple, so look for it debuting in our market in mid-to-late October!
