A new variety from
Washington State, the Lady Alice Apple has a distinctly round and slightly
squatty shape. The fruit's coloring is beautiful -- pink to red striping over
an orange-yellow background. Their flavor starts sweet, with a pleasant tart
This variety was
discovered as a chance seedling so its actual botanical origins are unknown.
However, like the Ginger Gold, when the fruit is sliced it takes a very long
time to brown; this characteristic makes it a chef's favorite sliced in salads
or fruit trays. Product of Washington.
Choose fruit with no
bruising and very firm. Keep refrigerated for best quality. Apples left at room
temperature for any length of time will turn mealy rapidly and lose all flavor.
