Apple Tree - Gravenstein
The Gravenstein originated in Denmark where it was used for brandy production, apple cider, apple sauce, and as a cooking apple.
Firm, snappy, light green with red stripes and a wonderful distinctive flavor. Gravenstein Apple (Red Gravenstein) is an improved strain of the old favorite cooking apple with darker red stripes. It has an excellent tart flavor and famous for sauces, baking and fresh use.
Pick the apples frequently because of uneven ripening. This can be somewhat controlled by heavy pruning.
The Red Gravenstein is a hardy variety and can withstand difficult conditions.
It requires pollination from another variety: Empire, Fuji, Gala, or Red Delicious.
