Red Cleopatra Dwarfing

This attractive medium sized red apple has consistently delighted by those who try them at our apple tastings. Extremely crunchy, with flesh that almost splits when bitten. A fresh sweetf lavour.  Red Cleo is little known in the literature. We had thought that is was a red form of New York Pippin:  a yellow/green apple once grown commercially but we have decided that it quite different.
