Limbertwig ID Today

Are the Red Limmbertwig and Red Royal Limbertwig different varieties or just named similar. Need to know before I finish grafting this weekend.


According to the late Henry Morton they are different. Red Royal is a type of Royal Limbertwig. In my orchard the Red Royal is a bigger and redder apple and better tasting off the tree.


And getting grafted on my bench , NOW!

Yes, Red Royal is an excellent apple off the tree, and even better after storage. Myers’ Royal is similar, if a bit larger, and at least as tasty. I’m eating last season’s crop of both from storage right now, and they’re still top-notch. Only GoldRush and Hauer Pippin are better keepers here.
