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.

Product Details

Unknown Parentage, Europe, 1800s

Over the course of my research on Reinette Grise, I found only superlatives.

In The Fruit Manual, first published in 1860, Robert Hogg lauds Reinette Grise as "juicy, rich, and sugary, with a pleasant subacid flavor. A dessert apple of first quality."

150 years later, the USDA's Geneva orchard curators note Reinette Grise's flavor as "rich subacid, aromatic, very good to best."

I agree - Reinette Grises are exceptional apples whose rich, aromatic flavor stands the test of time.

Reinette Grises are plenty crunchy and juicy, though not extremely so - this is an ancient apple. With lots of sugar combined with a tantalizing acidity, Reinette Grise apples also make a top-notch cider.

Reinette Grise trees are scab-resistant, compact growers with a strong root system. As such, they thrive in our low-maintenance orchard.
