Red Rebel

Picked Red Rebel yesterday, and it was really good; old-fashioned spicy apple flavor and crisp, juicy flesh despite our miserable 106F October day.  This is one of the apples saved by apple hunter C. Lee Calhoun and recommended to us by Jason Bowen at Horne Creek Farm Southern Heritage Orchard in Pinnacle, NC.  I asked him for some apple varieties that colored up well in the heat, and this one certainly fills the bill.  We’re happy to add it to our lineup and it’s already growing in Africa at a couple test orchards there.
