A friend moved to Seattle from Denmark a number of years ago. About 30
years ago he returned from a trip back home with some scionwwod.
Although this apple came from a home orchard in Denmark, it is thought
to originally be a French apple. It has red streaks over pink
background with white flesh. The apples are small. The one I tasted
was about 2 inches in diameter. It ripens in Seattle in early
September. It has a nice balance of sugar and acid. It has a unique
taste, possibly a cider apple. My Danish friend knows it as "Pigshon".
I think this may be a corruption of "Pigeonnet" which is a class of
apples grown in France. Can anyone with experience in French apples
help me with this ID?
