Red Boskoop Apple Tree
Malus domestica 'Red Boskoop'
A very large, somewhat scab-resistant apple that produces heavy crops each year. A superior cooking and pie apple with a rich combination of sweet and tart flavors. It is a russetted apple over a red base color. It ripens in late October.
In Europe, it is prized because it stores all winter, and flavor improves in storage. It originated in Boskoop, Holland, in 1856 and is still a popular commercial variety in Europe.
This variety is a triploid and is pollen sterile. It will not pollinize other varieties.
