Mott Pink Apple

Hi all I ordered a new Bavay from Raintree today, and couldn't resist an earlier pollinator for my Pristing apple, so I purchased a Mott Pink apple. Guess I liked the idea of pink applesauce. Any feedback on this apple? Thanks, Mrs. G

RE: Mott Pink Apple

Since nobody commented on this one I looked it up, wanted to see what the inside looks, round apple, not much pink, nevertheless, it could be a good cooking apple.

It say's..
Prone to scab. Very prone to mites; attracts them like a magnet.

The pigmentation in Mott's Pink is variable; sometimes it is very pale; sometimes it is crimson.

Raintree's apple looks elongated and might not be the right picture.
Good luck!

Thank you Konrad you are very kind. I have the right spray for scab and looked up its positive and negative sides before ordering the apple. I just really thought it was pretty, and someone might have had experience with it. Thank you again Konrad. Mrs. g
