Burgundy Apple

Malus domestica 'Burgundy'

Burgundy produces large, round, solid dark blackish-red fruit.  The skin is smooth and glossy and the red color may bleed into the flesh somewhat.  It is an excellent, crisp, sub-acid flavored apple.  The fruit hangs well up to three weeks, but it does not store for more than a month after harvest.  Ripens in mid to late September.
