Malus ‘Pink Pearmain’ has deep pink flesh and a tart flavour making these apples good for baking.

Malus ‘Pink Pearmain’ (Red Flesh) - A red fleshed apple variety created by Albert Etter in Northern California. This variety was saved in 1980 by Ram Fishman who found it growing in an old orchard near Whale Gulch, California and gave it the name ‘Pink Pearmain’. The fruit is large and has a distinctive upside down shape, broader at the base than at the stem. It ripens about mid October and develops a red-striped skin when ready. The flesh colour is a deep pink tone but varies according to climatic conditions. It is quite tart but has that distinctive aromatic flavour that characterizes the red fleshed apples. Use for pies and other baking. | Rootstock: B.118 (Semi-Dwarf)
