Flavor: Juicy, mild sweetness with a little hint of vinous
Approximate Ripening: Early-mid August
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.
