Redfree

Redfree

Flavor: Juicy, mild sweetness with a little hint of vinous

Approximate Ripening: Early-mid August

Uses: Eating

Trivia: Original seedling first planted by PRI (Purdue-Rutgers-Illinois) in 1966; released in 1981

Notes: Smooth, glossy skin, red-yellow striping, and a classic shape make Redfree a beauty contest winner, and the crispness makes it a great eater, too.  Keeps well for an early apple.
