RED PRINCE - A Binkley exclusive!
Our newest and most exclusive variety! The Red Prince apple was discovered in 1994 on the German/Holland border. A lone tree laden with big, beautiful red apples stood out in stark contrast to the green fruit hanging in the rest of the orchard. At the time of the discovery, they believed it was a gift from Mother Nature. Later the apple was traced back to a natural crossing between a Jonathan and a Golden Delicious! In 2001 Marius and Irma Botden, the owners of Global Fruit, began planting the first Red Prince trees in Thornbury, Ontario. As exclusive growers of the Red Prince in Canada, they are proud to introduce this wonderful apple to Canada and the U.S!
The Red Prince is a premium apple that can reach a circumference of 13 inches. It has a well-rounded, slightly oblate shaped and distinct colouration. Venetian patches of red peek through a blanket of crimson—an eye-catching combination of two very beautiful, rich shades of red. Beneath the antioxidant-rich skin of the Red Prince apple lies dense, crisp and snappy flesh. The flavours of its parentage apples are evident, offering a snack that is refreshing, sweet and tangy. It's great eaten fresh, in salads, baked, and paired with sharp cheddars and blue cheeses!
