BELLE DE BOSKOOP Holland 1856

$36.95

Belle De Boskoop originated from seed in 1856 in the nursery of the Ottlander family in Boskoop, Holland. Large greenish-yellow fruit with rough skin and dark red blush on exposed fruits. Crisp, tangy, highly aromatic flesh that sweetens in storage. Outstanding, all-purpose, tart apple. Long sought after by chefs and cider makers for its sharp flavor allowing it to hold up in the oven and bottle. Heavybearing. Consider Grimes Golden, Liberty and/or White Pearmain for pollination.
