Red Boskoop Apple / Antonovka
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. 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. It is a russetted apple over a red base color. It ripens in late October.
