Rouge Belle de Boskoop is a well-regarded 19th century apple, from the town of Boskoop in the Netherlands, and still grown commercially on a small scale in Europe. It is a classic long-storing dual-purpose apple, versatile in the kitchen, and good for eating fresh if you like a sharper apple. This variety may also be used for drying. The relatively large apples are variable in colour, usually a functional green with orange or red flushes and some russeting. The pink and white spring blossom is pretty. Rouge Belle de Boskoop is a vigorous-growing tree, with good disease-resistance, and producing large apples – typical of a triploid variety. It is therefore very easy to grow, but whilst it is readily pollinated by most other mid-bloom apple varieties, it will not cross-pollinate with them.
