Lady Apples are a small apple that can range in color from brilliant red to yellow with generous red blushing. The Lady apple originated in Bretagne, France back in 1628. Its flesh is sweet-tart and it can be eaten raw or cooked and may also be dried or made into cider.
Fresh lady apples are available during the winter months from approximately October to January. These apples are also available canned, and are widely used for garnishing purposes and even to decorate Christmas trees.
These apples are typically found in grocery stores around Christmas. Look for them in very well-stocked grocery stores or in your local farmer's market. You can usually find them online (when in-season) at Melissas.com.
