Apple 'Pixirosso', Malus domestica
The unusual feature of this apple is the pink flesh; when fully ripe, it's a spectacular bright pink-red colour, with dramatic white flashes running through it. Unlike many red-fleshed apples that have been bred in the past this is a good flavoured apple which is sweet and crisp. Thompson and Morgan describe it as a vigorous grower; it has the red blossom of most redfleshed apples, and red-bronze foliage. The fruit is ripe in October.
It is not self fertile so needs another apple of similar flowering period for pollination. T&M's trees are sold on M9 stock. It is best grown in full sun.
