Apple Bloody Butcher

An Irish heritage variety, dual purpose apple from the midlands. Large, unevenly-shaped fruit, pale yellow covered with deepest crimson; some russeting. The firm, white flesh is quite juicy and tart, but needs little added sugar when cooked; can be eaten fresh when fully ripened. The tree is a heavy cropper, vigorous and spreading, with a tendency for the branches to droop from the weight of the fruit. Spur-bearer. Apple Bloody Butcher is a triploid variety, vigorous and disease-resistant, but should be planted with two other, different apple-trees to ensure pollination of all three.
