The distinctive, bright red-orange blush covering this interesting new variety is almost exactly the same hue as Robin Redbreast's chest. It is highly doubtful that the robin is a common bird in New Zealand, where Redd Robin™ was developed, as it is here, but the name fits like a charm! With it's mild, sweet, low acid flavour and juicy, crisp crunchy texture, it has gained a following and is starting to be grown commercially here in North America as well as down under. Home gardeners also appreciate the dependable, productive tree. Storage life is good at 3 months or more.
