Sundowner Apples

Sundowner Apples

Sundowner is very much a warm-climate apple.  That means it needs long hot summers to ripen, but it also has a low-chill requirement so it can tolerate winters where temperatures are rarely below freezing.  (Apples originated in mountainous central Asia and need a period of very cold weather each winter as part of their annual growing cycle). The flavour is less delicate than Pink Lady, and slightly more distinctive Рin this respect it is probably the better apple. Although primarily an apple for eating fresh, Sundowner can be used in the kitchen Рit keeps its shape when cooked.
