Opalescent apple tree was once widely grown in New England due to its stunning attractiveness. The Opalescent apple ripens to an iridescent glowing crimson on the tree. Opalescent apples’ flavor is rich, sweet with a hint of strawberry. Crunchy, with dense flesh that’s flavorful but not very juicy. Fruit can be medium to large in size. A fine all-round apple great juiced, cooks superbly as well as eaten fresh.
