A great low chill apple from Israel for our customer in Zones8-9. Medium to large apple with dark red to sometimes black color with smooth waxy finish.

Flesh is cream colored, firm, juicy, and sprightly, similar to Stayman with a sweet-tart flavor. Medium size fruit have a red color over yellow striping.
