FIRST OWN-BRED FRUIT
The two parent apples are shown on the left and right; the seedling apple in the centre. Notice it has inherited the shape of the redfleshed fruit on the right, and some of the russeting of the apple on the left. The flavour was average to good and there was a distinct flavour of lemon, though no red flesh. Nevertheless the fruit size and flavour show that we are retaining the right seedlings.
The pollination which produced this fruit took place in 2010. The fruit itself came from a tree grafted four years ago.

We also appear to have results on MM106, Seagrave Nonesuch (an excellent wild seedling found in North Leicestershire), Laxton's Fortune, George's Red, West Virginia Beauty and a few others.

The colours vary a little; white fleshed apples have pale yellow pollen. Hansen-type redfleshed have pollen sacs with a pink tinge; Etter type pollen sacs are yellow. Two apples are difficult to classify as 'Hansen' or 'Etter' types; Webster Pinkmeat has the characteristic red wood and crimson blossom of Hansen apples but the pollen sacs are pale. Breunsdorfer is similar and has the additional feature of producing pale skinned apples.
