Airlie Red Flesh Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall. Possibly a seedling of the red-fleshed Surprise. Airlie, OR, about 1960.
The flesh of this good-quality dessert apple is a surprising and beautiful deep salmon-pink. The medium-sized roundish-conic fruit is apricot-orange, sometimes with a deep red blush. As friends of ours said, “This is an apple for gazing at, admiring and fresh eating.”
Thought to have been discovered by Lucky and Audrey Newell in Airlie, OR. Introduced 40 years later and trademarked as Hidden Rose (cultivar name Newell-Kimzey) by Thomas Paine Farms in 2001. Also known as Aerlies Red Flesh and Schwartz Apple. Sometimes confused with Pink Pearl.
Uncertain bloom time. Z4.
