Coul Blush is an early-season dual-purpose apple, with a yellow skin, flushed orange.

The cream-coloured flesh is fairly soft, with a sweeter flavour than you might expect for a summer apple.

For cooking, pick slightly earlier. It cooks to a fluffy puree.

The apples can be kept in the fridge for 4-6 weeks.

How to grow

Coul Blush is a vigorous and disease resistant tree, but a poor pollinator of other varieties.
