Hidden Rose® apple trees

(Airlie Red Flesh)
Malus domestica
Hidden Rose
Hidden Rose is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators
  • Picking season: Very late
  • Self-fertility: Not self-fertile
  • Flowering group: 2

Hidden Rose is a plain green-skinned apple, but when you bite into it you find the unusual rose pink flesh.

As with many red or pink-fleshed apples the blossom is a deeper pink than with regular white-fleshed apples.

Hidden Rose apples ripen quite late in the season. They have a pleasant tangy flavour, and overall this is one of the better-tasting red or pink-fleshed varieties. The apples can be kept in cold storage for several months.
