Today's treat is a new variety from New York's fruit-breeding program at Cornell University.
Its handsome red blush, streaky, russet-blasted, and set off by distinctive light lenticel dots, is complex and pleasing. The underlying yellow, edged with green, shows through to degrees in some regions.
There are patches of russet in the recess around stem and calyx (which is closed).
The apples are on the large side of medium, one more tapered than the other (which is shown above), and modestly ribbed. Unbroken, they are firm and carry a promising whiff of yeast.
