Redfield Apple on P.18 (Spring 2021)


A unique, late-season, red-fleshed apple.

This is an extremely cold-hardy (to zone 3), vigorous tree with slight resistance to fireblight and high resistance to scab. It has striking red wood and pink blossoms.

Redfield is a beautiful, large apple with a deep, dark red skin that wears a fine net of russet. The dramatically red flesh is firm and yields a red juice with a tart, aromatic, and astringent flavor. Redfield will not store for more than a couple of weeks, but it is a fantastic baking and preserves apple. Too acidic for fresh eating (for most palates), it has, however, found favor with cider makers; it makes a lovely, bittersweet, blush cider.

Developed by the Geneva research station in NY, Redfield is a cross of Wolf River and Malus niedzwetzkyana that was released in 1938.
