Red-Fleshed Apple : HIDDEN ROSE Semi-Dwarf (G969)


88 in stock

This unique cultivar was discovered near Airlie, Oregon and was originally known as 'Airlie Red Flesh'. Thankfully, it was soon given the very apt and more appealing 'Hidden Rose' name. Indeed, by looking at the mid-sized cone-shaped apple, you would never guess that just below the glossy green-gold skin, it harbours an alluring, rosy-pink interior. Tom Burford describes it as 'juicy, crisp, sugary and richly flavoured.' It actually stores well too. So plant the tree for it's adorable pink blossoms–which rival any flowering crabapple–and get the fruit as a bonus.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
