The Instacart guide to Holstein apples
About Holstein apples
Experts believe the Holstein apple descended from Cox's Orange Pippin. This yellow-skinned apple presents a pretty, reddish-orange blush. In the world of apples, Holstein's taste and texture give it a lot of versatility. The Holstein has delicious flavor and aroma in its cream-colored, firm flesh, plus plenty of juiciness. It tastes sweet and slightly tart with hints of pineapple.
The Holstein apple was first discovered in Germany in 1918. In all likelihood, the Orange Pippin landed on the ground somewhere during World War I and sprouted, eventually becoming the Holstein tree we know today. Holstein apples grow larger than the Orange Pippin, probably due to the tree's vigorous nature. The tree works well in personal gardens, as it doesn't pollinate other trees and has a disease resistance that helps it thrive without a lot of attention. Its flowers are susceptible to frost damage. Ripening occurs in September.
Holstein's crisp flesh makes it the perfect apple to snack on, either fresh and whole or sliced. The Holstein's sweetness lends itself to desserts. You'll find them delicious when baked in pies or as a savory-sweet addition to your apple-bourbon glazed pork chop. Holstein apples have greater longevity for storage, lasting up to five months when kept appropriately.
