The medium-sized roundish-conic sometimes elongated fruit is greenish yellow with a pink-apricot blush. Bite into it to find that the flesh is a surprising and beautiful deep salmon color. As friends of ours said, “This is an apple for gazing at, admiring and fresh eating.” Probably the sweetest of all the red-fleshed varieties we’ve tried. Thought to have been discovered by Lucky and Audrey Newell in Airlie, OR. Introduced 40 years later and trademarked as Hidden Rose by Thomas Paine Farms in 2001. Also known as Aerlies Red Flesh and Schwartz Apple. Sometimes confused with Albert Etter’s Pink Pearl.
Uncertain bloom time. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
