Reinette Clochard

white almost fluorescent flesh, glistening with moisture, juicy and sweet. This apple bears the interesting name of Pomme Clochard (tramp apple -- \"tramp\" being used here in the sense of vagrant or bum). Its full botanical name is Pomme Reinette Clochard, which is even more interesting: reinette is a variety of apples, but it also means literally \"little queen\". You can also look for its equally tasty half-sister the Chantecler apple (a.k.a. Chantecler Belchard), a cross between Reinette Clochard and Golden Delicious that was developped in the fifties.
