Ananas Reinette was first noted in France in the 1500′s, but popularized in Germany 1800's. Russet freckles over gold skin. Crisp and juicy with intense sweet, sharp flavor, developing the pineapple flavor late in the season (its name means pineapple russet). Fruit gets sweeter as the golden color deepens, but it never loses the tang. Medium to small fruit which is appropriate thanks to their big flavor. Good for eating fresh, cooking and juice. Consider Grimes Golden, Liberty and/or White Pearmain for pollination.
