The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Karmijn de Sonnavile

Product Details

Cox's Orange Pippin x Jonathan, bred by Piet de Sonnaville, Netherlands, 1971

Karmijn de Sonnaville apples are so good they might inspire you to name something Piet in its honor of its creator - I chose my desk lamp.

Karmijn de Sonnaville dispenses itself in satisfying chunks that are intensely sweet and seriously sour. The apple looks old but eats modern, with a crisp, crunchy, juicy texture.

My Karmijn trees have been slow to bear, prone to scab, and experienced some watercore. Its ambrosial flavor, however, has far outweighed its trouble.

As a triploid apple, Karmijn trees are vigorous and will not pollinate other apple varieties

Brix: 18
Harvest: Early October
