Karmijn de Sonnaville Apples

Karmijn de Sonnaville are large-sized apples. The shape varies, but they are generally roundish, but slightly-flattened.

They have rough yellowish-green skin flushed with orangey or brownish-red, with some russetting around the bottom.

Inside, they have off-white flesh that is crisp, juicy, aromatic, and somewhat coarse, with a very good strong apple flavour. The flavour is a good balance of sweet and tart, getting less tangy after some storage.

In the spring, the tree blossoms with large, ornamental flowers.

The fruit does best in moderate summer temperatures.

Cooking Tips
