About Suntan apples

Suntan apples are a unique type of apple that is a favorite among those looking for a rich-flavored bite. They are a later-ripening apple and are typically ready in late October. You'll find that these medium-sized apples have a gold-yellow outer skin covered with orange-red stripes. Suntan apples result from a cross between two other popularly strong-flavored varieties, the Cox's Orange Pippin and Court Pendu Plat. 

Suntan apples originated from Kent, England, in 1956. In 1999, the Suntan apple received the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. The interior flesh of the apple is a cream-yellow color that is crisp and coarse while packing a punch of acidic flavor. While the Suntan apple is appealing to many for its rich taste, it requires more care to grow organically than other varieties. The apple is prone to diseases, including powdery mildew and canker. But its distinct flavor is worth the effort.

Suntan apples present quite a sharp taste when first picked. You may not know precisely when the apples you are purchasing were picked, but leaving them in the refrigerator for a few days or even up to 4 months will help the flavor to mellow. As long as the fruit has kept its brightly colored exterior, you can be confident in a crisp, robust-tasting apple.
