Karneval

This apple is a cult, because not one looks like another and yet all have a typical face. The unusual fruit coloration with conspicious red and yellow stripes is a real eye-catcher – on the tree as well as on the table. The typical, fine-sourish, juicy taste awakens the finest flavors. Karneval is scab tolerant (scab resistant Rvi6), hardly susceptible to mildew and also ideal for the private garden.
