Apple Lough Tree of Wexford

An Irish heritage variety of early to mid-season dessert apple, originally found in a Co Wexford. The fruit is small to medium-sized, the greenish-yellow skin almost completely covered with crimson streaks and stippling, giving a bright red appearance. The flesh is crisp, sweet and juicy. The tree is vigorous, reliable and a heavy cropper, with good resistance to disease. Spur-bearer. Mid-season blossom. The fruit is best eaten straight from the tree. Very attractive when the fruit is ripe on the tree.
