Devonshire Crimson Queen: It’s perfect for us that the other name for this one is the “Queenie Apple.” The only flaw of this apple is that is quickly gets a little soft, even so it’s still considered a dessert apple in England. These apples start out fairly sharp and get sweeter as they sit. These rare and distinctive apples have gradually won us over more year after year. On the tree they will look as though they range in color from solid red to totally green. Their season stretches over several weeks and so we start out picking only the solid red and come back every few days to pick just those. Only in the last pickings should those less red apples be harvested. When these are deepest red, especially in cooler seasons when they can ripen slowly, they will have lovely dark pink blush inside the flesh that starts near the skin and can continue all the way to the core. We have a number of trees grafted in 2017 on M26 that will be available. The scion wood from these is average size.
