Striped and Sour - overview

The apples in this section are all cookers with acid flesh although some can be eaten as dessert towards the end of their lives and Tom Putt is primarily a cider apple. They all develop stripes as they ripen – as opposed to just a flush.  Lane’s Prince Albert can stay almost completely green and only develop stripes towards the end.  This group includes some large and spectacular apples with some very striking colour combinations i.e. Monarch and Hoary Morning.  It also includes the Howgate Wonder, still unbeaten as world record holder in the Guinness Book of Records weighing in at 3lbs 11ozs as the heaviest apple in the world.

You can see a photo gallery of striped and sour apples here.
