Rubinette Apple. The sweetly tart flavor of Rubinette, a cross between Golden Delicious and Cox’ Orange Pippen, will please fans of Cox crosses. Loads of incredibly delicious, small-medium, attractive apples, golden with red stripes, ripen in early October. The patented scab and mildew resistant Swiss cultivar is a favorite of organic growers in Europe, where it is grown commercially. Planted 2007. Source: Raintree.
