One of the last apples to ripen in a standard orchard, the Rubaiyat is a glorious red apple. It is one of the few that's flesh is a bright red color- almost like a Ruby! The fruit is rather small, about the size as a Whitney or Daninette Crabapple but is remarkably sweet. Some tell of a slight berry scent and flavor when used with a week in a dessert or pie.
