Splendour Apples



Splendour are medium to large-sized apples.

Their thin skin is a dull, pinkish-red, with occasional russetting.

Inside, they have crisp, firm pale yellowish flesh with a mild, sweet taste, but not much balancing tartness.

The tree is a reliable heavy bearer.

History Notes

Released 1967.

The apple bruises easily, so it lost favour in markets as it didn't ship well.
