Any body tried Lucy Glo? These were in a jumbled bin at Chuck’s produce. I’ve never had it so I bought one to try. Wish I’d bought a bag, the one was quite good.
It’s crisp, very juicy, sweet tart and beautiful inside. My wife will think its too sour, but its got lots of sugar. Had a bit of fruit punch flavor in the background.
This may be the best red flesh I’ve had but for maybe some Aerlie’s Red Flesh/Hidden Rose and the texture was probably better.
I don’t know if I just caught them a their best, or if this is an apple to look out for. The one they had cut open at the store looked a lot different than the one I ate. I apologize for the poor cut picture, it was an afterthought.
I’m curious to hear what others think. I only had one. I’m looking forward to getting more. I mostly loaded up on Smitten. They had conventional and organic, the organic were significantly redder so I got more of those.
Jafar, thank you for posting that. I thought about going to Chucks but it was Saturday. I have to do it on a day when on my own, or I get into trouble for buying apples when I already have so many ripening apples in my garden
Looking those, up, apparently a HoneyCrisp cross. I think HoneyCrisp is the next Jonathan in that it will be a parent or grandparent of many new apple cultivars. Maybe soon, “JonaCrisp”?
Beautiful red flesh! Weird not to have seeds. I wonder if they used a blossom set type of spray.
I bet there will be more red flesh apples along the way. I have a one-year-old Redlove Era. Deer just ate all of the leaves, but it’s October so maybe that won’t matter. I’m hoping for another type of Redlove to add this year if nurseries carry it.
Thanks again for the information. Interesting to see that!
Its gorgeous and sounds great, I wonder how it does with Fireblight? I feel there has to be some genetic link between red flesh and astringency reducing fireblight resistance (Or atleast what i have seen from 6 or so cultivars)
I picked these out at Cub because the skin looked different and they smelled nice. I had no idea before biting into it that it would be red fleshed! What a nice surprise.
They are sweet with a cherry koolaid flavor in the background. The skin is a little chewy but not too much so. I can taste the honeycrisp sweetness but not as crisp. This one hasn’t got any spicy or tart flavors to it but the berry flavor makes it interesting. A really good apple. Im glad i bought a bag full.
