Melrose Apple


Product Details

This apple was released by the Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station  and was obtained from a cross between the Jonathan and the Red Delicious apples.

The result is flattened large fruit, which is streaked and flushed with dark red over a background of yellowish-green skin, with spots of russet.

The flesh is creamy white, of firm and coarse texture, and juicy. The flavor is mildly acidic, similar to Jonathan, but not as tart.

It comes into season at the beginning of October.

* Prefers Full sun, therefore plant in an area that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
