Hidden Rose is named for the surprising pink flesh concealed behind the plain green skin.

It is one of the best flavoured of the American red-fleshed apple varieties, and (perhaps no coincidence) also one of the latest ripening. It can be stored for a few months too.

 

History

Hidden Rose was named in 2001, but was discovered in the 1960s growing as a seedling tree near Airlie in Oregon, USA. It is still widely known by its original name - Airlie Red Flesh.
