I had a look at the picture and these apples appear different than the
Whitney's I have harvested. Yours look a bit like Kerr. Now, it is also
possible that my Whitney is a bad identification...
About Kerr, I must say that those I harvested this summer were the most
amazing fruit I have tasted in my life - such a mixture of high sugar, high
acidity with strawberry aftertaste was just incredible.
You can see a picture of Kerr at the following WWW page:
and compare with the one you tasted.
