Re: [NAFEX] Oregon Pink Fleshed Apple?I am not sure what Ram knows about red
fleshed apples but I purchased 35 bench grafts from him and 32 of them
failed. I have not had that experience from any other seller.

  It isn't Pink Pearl - that variety isn't red on the outside most of the
time.  The person who would probably know is Ram Fishman  He has done more
work on red flesh apples than anyone.
  Contact him at:
  Greenmantle Nursery, Ram and Marissa Fishman, 3010 Ettersburg Road,
Garberville, CA   95440.  (707) 986-7504.  Catalog $3.

    The CRFG received the following email from a man in Hillsboro, Oregon
asking for help in identifying an apple:

    Can you help me? I need help identifying an apple tree. About a year ago
my Mom's friend gave us some apples from their tree. They were red on the
outside, and tasted very much like a Red Gravenstein apple on the inside.
The only difference with this apple was that the meat of the apple was a
very deep pink. Even when made into applesauce it came out with a deep pink
color. The tree was planted about 100 years ago. By the Parents of my Mom's
friend. They have know idea what kind of apple tree it was that their
parents had planted.
    Just for the heck of it during the last week of February 2003, I decided
to graft a few small branches onto my Mom's Granny Smith Tree and I grafted
one small branch onto my Gravenstein (just for the fun of it) All grafts
have taken.
    In the mean time I thought I would try and track down what type of tree
it is. Any ideas?

    I told him that my guess would be Pink Pearl but that this apple was not
introduced by Albert Etter until 1944 (per the Seed Savers Fruit, Berry and
Nut Inventory, Third Edition).  Perhaps the 100 years is a red herring (no
pun intended). Can anyone else think of other possibilities?
