It is a seedling of "Surprise", another red-fleshed apple.
Pink Pearl apples are generally medium sized, with a conical shape.
They are named for their bright, pink flesh. They have a translucent, yellow-green skin, and a crisp, juicy flesh with tart to sweet-tart taste.

It originated as a cross between two American apple varieties -- the Red Delicious and old Virginia Ralls Genet (sometimes cited as "Rawls Jennet") apples.

The Braeburn is a cultivar of apple that is believed to have been discovered as a chance seedling in 1952 by the farmer O. Moran from Waiwhero in the Moutere Hills near Motueka, New Zealand.
The Braeburn apple is thought to be a cross between Granny Smith and Lady Hamilton.
The apple itself is named after the Braeburn Orchard where it was first commercially grown.
It is firm to the touch with a red/orange vertical streaky appearance on a yellow/green background.
Braeburn apples have a unique combination of sweet and tart flavor with a moderate shelf life.

The Arkansas Black is an apple cultivar thought to have been developed in the mid-19th Century in Arkansas. Arkansas Black is one of the darkest of all apple cultivars, hence the name.
Arkansas Black apples are generally medium sized with a somewhat flattened shape.
Generally a very dark red on the tree, occasionally with a slight green blush where hidden from the sun, the apples grow darker as they ripen, becoming a very dark red or burgundy color.
The flesh in good years is notably hard and crunchy when fresh, though it does soften somewhat with keeping.
Fairly tart when fresh-picked, the apples mellow with storage.
Arkansas Blacks are considered an excellent keeping apple, keeping for six months in good storage conditions.       BACK TO LIST

Gala apples are small and are usually red with a portion being greenish or yellow-green, vertically striped.
 
Gala apples are fairly resistant to bruising and are sweet, grainy, with a mild flavor and a thinner skin than most apples.

The Quince is native to Southwest Asia, Turkey and Iran.
Cultivation of Quince may have preceded apple culture, and many references translated to "apple", such as the fruit in Song of Solomon of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, may actually have been to a quince.
Among the ancient Greeks, the quince was a ritual offering at weddings, for it had come from the Levant with Aphrodite and remained sacred to her.
It must be cooked to enjoy the apple, pear and pineapple flavors.
The mature fruit is yellow and hard with a strongly perfumed flesh, it also has a very long shelf life.
Widely used in confections, conserves, marmalades, it can be baked with apples in a pie for added color and a distinct flavor.     BACK TO LIST
