Very crisp and crunchy even in the South, though it’s a Yankee (Cornell U. 1924 or thereabouts)(btw, this is not the same apple as the French ‘Orleans Reinette’ from the 1700s). Red Delicious is one of its parents, and Orleans has that same elongated “sheeps nose” shape. But Orleans is larger, stores better and is a “super sweet.” Resistant to everything but the summer rots, but we always get plenty of these regardless. Ripens late summer. Available on semi-dwarf MM.111.
