Discovery Apple

Apple

Description: Discovery is an attractive, well rounded early dessert apple. Flushed with bright blood red with slight traces of dark red stripes. Flesh is creamy white, firm, fine-textured, crisp and juicy with a hint of strawberry flavour. An excellent apple with good disease resistance. A great garden variety as they are at their best when eaten straight from the tree!
