This apple originates from Sparta Township, Michigan where it was discovered by an apple grower named Lewis Arends near a McIntosh block in his orchard. He named the apple after his darling wife Pauline. The Paulared apple is medium to large with an irregular, round shape similar to that of the McIntosh. The skin has a dusty sheen to it and shows a deep red coloration with patches of yellow and tan in the background. The flesh is firm and white with a distinctive taste that's not too sweet, yet not too tart. Like the Jerseymac, the Paulared is an early autumn delight, best enjoyed fresh in late summer.
Available from late August to mid-September
