(Star Lady) Switzerland 1600's


Originally appeared in France in approximately 1628 and later made its way across the channel to England where it became extremely popular, decorating Victorian tables. A rare apple, small and attractive, brightly flushed red over the yellow skin. Very unusual oblate (flattened) shape looking like a rounded star from the end. A little larger than the Lady apple. Excellent flavor: aromatic with sufficient acid and a sweet fruity taste. Ripens late.
