  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Swiss Gourmet™, as its name suggests, was a very popular apple in Europe for a good reason. It has a distinct, sweet and tart flavor. The flesh is creamy white. The fruit is medium to large size with a nice red blush. In some areas it will russet badly, but this does not affect the excellent flavor or eating quality. Harvests early in the fall a couple weeks before Jonathan.

Swiss Gourmet™ is also known as Arlet and was introduced into the US from Switzerland in 1984. It is a cross of Golden Delicious and Idared.
