Melrose- Now Available
Melrose was introduced in 1944. It was bred from two well known and desirable parents, Jonathan and Red Delicious, at the Ohio Experiment Station in Wooster Ohio.
Melrose is large apple that is red flushed over a yellow background. The flesh is firm and sweet with a slight acid tang. It is white fleshed, cooks well and is excellent eaten out of hand.
Melrose ripens late and the good flavor actually improves in storage.
It can get some scab, mildew and will get some fireblight. It does have some resistance to Cedar Apple Rust.
