THE HARVEST: Quinte Apples

Tart, tangy and small. This early apple is a cross between the Red Melba and Crimson Beauty apples. It was developed in Ontario, Canada in 1964. So firm and crisp it actually snaps when I bite into it.

This is the first freshly picked apple I have had midsummer. Call me naive but I had regulated apple eating to the fall only. So glad my horizons are expanding!
