Big Boskoop

The Red Boskoop apples are honkin’ big this year.  It’s weird to see them on my tiny M27 rootstock tree that’s about 3′ tall with a big load of these oversized apples on it.  We’re getting a few early drops that had stings or cracks on them; crisp, juicy, way too zingy for fresh eating yet, but would probably make great pies and applesauce (with enough sugar!).  Anyone who thinks warm climate apples are sweet, mushy, and bland haven’t had one of these sour, hard apples bite back.  The main crop ripens a bit later in the fall.  I wish I had a full-sized tree of these.
