If you want to grow the best-tasting apple in the world, this is probably it. This unassuming apple has perhaps the most remarkable flavour of any variety.
Most people who try Rubinette agree it is the best apple they have ever eaten - here is a selection of the tasting notes from our sister website about Rubinette:
"Undoubtedly the best tasting variety we grow …"
"Rubinettes are, by far, the tastiest apples I have ever eaten."
"... the most delicious apple I have had in years."
" ... a wonderful little apple."
"Crisp-juicy-flavoursome-tart - the most tasty apple we have had for years."
"... by far the tastiest apple variety I've tried in a long time."
"Extreme summer heat did not bother it and the flavor and crunch were outstanding."
"... the best apples I have eaten."
"... spent a couple of hours tasting a huge variety of apples, and we all kept coming back to Rubinette."
"This apple is a revelation ..."
Rubinette is related to Cox's Orange Pippin, and has a very similar style and flavour. It is perhaps the only variety that could legitimately claim to surpass Cox for the richness and balance of its flavours.
We offer the "Rubinette Rosso" sport, which has a slightly better skin colouration.
