Scrumping Apples in Spain – December 2014

December 5, 2014

Found some interesting apples near Puigcerda in Spain at about 1200 metres altitude.

 

SPAIN- APPLE1

 

Stopped off next to a field with a couple of apples trees. Close to the road and easily accessible. Apples on the trees and on the ground. Picked a few to try. Distinctly pear shaped, mostly yellow with some blushing. Good to eat. Strongly scented, a little tart and tough skins. Great cooked.

Any clues to the name for this variety would be appreciated.
