The Hidden Rose (Red Flesh Apple)

Ill be honest, although I had heard of this red fleshed apple, I have never eaten one, until now! What a treat, first, the hidden rose its beautiful, cutting open an apple to find a red interior is awesome. I was like a kid in a candy store, waiting for Sid Wainer to drop off the 1/2 bushel just to get a look and taste. Very firm, tart, almost like a granny smith, but sweeter. What a great addition to the apple salad on the fall menu, even the pickled apples on the pork belly Cuban are getting this apple right now. Stunning visual and great flavor.
