Holstein Apple

Fall. Cox’s Orange Pippin x open-pollinated. Discovered in Euitin, Holstein, Germany, 1918, and introduced in 1950, to became one of the most popular apple varieties in Germany.

Very attractive deep yellow fruit is blushed and streaked with reddish-orange, with a russeted stem cavity. Larger than its parent Cox, round ovate with flat shoulders and a funny slant to one side. Creamy yellow flesh is firm, juicy and aromatic with a balance of sweet and tart, and tropical hints. Great for dessert. Holds its shape in pies and presses into a pleasant orange-colored juice. Some disease resistance. Triploid: will not pollinate other varieties. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
