Striped and sweet overview

Striped, smooth and sweet

The apples in this section are dessert/dual apples, some are quite large, such as Peasgood Nonsuch and can be used as cookers, but basically they are regarded as eating apples.
They have smooth skins with russet only in the cavity, or present in a very small amount on the surface.  They develop stripes rather than an all over dense colour or flush. The dividing line can be quite fine, i.e. Sir John Thorneycroft colours an all over red quite late and would only have stripes in September.  Wealthy could be classified as a red apple when really ripe.

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

Striped apples can become red as the flush and stripes intensify so check red i.e. Jonagold and Sir John Thorneycroft both appear as ‘striped and sweet’ early in the season
