Kinnaird’s Choice

Kinnaird’s Choice:  This Tennessee apple originated in about 1855,  possibly as a cross between a Winesap and Limbertwig, both discussed later in this catalog. In 1896, a prominent orchardist called it “ the finest apple grown in middle Tennessee.” It is perhaps the most attractive apple in my orchard,  having a dark red color. Fruit size is medium to large usually with unequal sides. The flesh is yellow, crisp (tender if over ripe), juicy, aromatic, and mildly subacid. Ripens in September and October.
