Apple tree – Richelieu
Zone 4 self-sterile: Medium-sized apples, red-striped on a pale green background. Its white flesh is juicy and crunchy, with a mild sweet flavour. Perfect for dessert and good for cooking. The apple is harvested in mid-September, and keeps in cold storage for 3 months. The tree takes time to start producing, but then produces abundantly each year. It is sensitive to cedar apple rust and quince rust, but resistant to scab. It is a good substitute for Lobo.
