Belle de Boskoop Apple
This apple was discovered as a chance seedling in 1856 in Boskoop, Netherlands where it has remained popular ever since. Here’s one for those of us who love some sharpness in an apple. With its sharp taste and large, greenish-yellow fruit, this apple is still popular at farmer’s markets throughout Europe for both fresh eating and cooking (keeps its shape). It has value as a sharp in hard cider blends as well. Harvest in mid-October and these beauties will keep until April.
