A red form of Sturmer, otherwise identical. It's extremely late, very acid, and is really a great all rounder - eaten fresh, cooked, juiced or made into cider. By modern standards it's no beauty; with orange/yellow russeted skin, a dense yellowish flesh, and medium in size. It's a very heavy cropper and stores well. An essential apple for the home gardener as it extends the apple season well into late winter when most others have finished. Sturmer is named from after the village of the same name in Suffolk where it originated in the 1800's.
