Straight out of the Shenandoah valley in Virginia, comes the Shenandoah apple. It was discovered in the 1940s. It's parents are the Winesap and Opalescent apples. The apple is suppose to be large in size, but the sample I got was rather on the small side.
My Experience with this Apple (Rating Scale 1-10)
Tartness : 3
Apple Flavor: 6
Overall Feeling: Shenandoah apples are juicy, sweet with a moderately good flavor. They holds shape when cooked. If you do use them for cooking, you shouldn't need as much sugar. People do like to make pies with this apple.
I purchased these apples at Produce Station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They were grown by Eastman's Antique Apples.
