Zabergau Reinette Apple


Zabergau Reinette Apple

Winter. Württemberg, Germany, 1885.

One of the most famous of all European heirlooms. Excellent fresh eating and good for cooking. Very large, even huge, round-conic, sometimes lopsided, greenish-bronze russeted fruit with a red-orange blush. Similar to Pomme Grise in color, but much larger. Quite visible light whitish russet spots cover the entire fruit. A very attractive apple. Firm white fine-grained flesh with a rich nutty intense sweet-sharp flavor—fruity with hints of raspberry. Keeps well until midwinter and sweetens up in storage.

Productive upright vigorous tree. Triploid: will not pollinate other varieties. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
