Arkcharm

This apple caught me by surprise while walking through the garden; it’s on my Fuji multi-graft “Frankentree”.  The variety is Arkcharm, a University of Arkansas introduction.  It’s ripening right on time, the end of August, and I’m quite anxious to taste it as the flavor is supposed to be quite good for a summer apple.  The description says it doesn’t keep well, but it does fill in the schedule between Hawaii and WIlliams Pride and Bramley, the next apples to be ripening.  We’ve had days in the 100’s and quite warm nights, and so the coloring is excellent and the size and shape are good too.  I may have to do more testing of this apple.

  1. Can’t wait for the results. BTW are you planning to update your 20 favorite warm-climate apple varieties?

    • That depends; at the end of the apple season in December I review the list to see if I want to add any winners or drop any losers.

  2. Thank you for your speedy reply.
