Gravenstein A wonderful aromatic, crisp, yet juicy early apple. Usually quite large in size with a green red striped skin or full red colour and a white flesh.
A good apple for eating fresh but also popular for baked apples and apple sauce; turns very fluffy when cooked. Good for juicing.
5 - 6 apples per kilo
The Gravenstein originated in southern Denmark/ northern Germany before 1670, having some Italian parentage. Was taken to the New World in 1790.
