Karmijn de Sonnaville Apple
Malus domestica 'Karmijn de Sonnaville'
This intensely-flavored, red-russetted apple from Holland measures the highest in both sugars and acids. A triploid cross of Cox's Orange and Jonathan, it is the favorite of many; however, it is so highly flavored and aromatic, that it overwhelms some tastes when just off the tree. Put this excellent winter keeper in a box when it ripens in mid-October and wait about a month for the complex, mellow flavors to start shining through.
This variety is a triploid and is pollen sterile. It will not pollinize other varieties. Blooms midseason category 3. A vigorous grower and somewhat scab resistant, it has proven to thrive in our region.
