Title: Connell Red Apple
The Connell Red apple, a variety
adapted to the severe climate of Minnesota and Wisconsin, was formally
named in October 1957. It is believed
to be a red sport of Fireside, according
to W. H. Alderman (formerly with
the University of Minnesota), and was
first discovered in 1949 by Mr.
Connell, in his orchard at Menomonie,
Like Fireside, Connell Red
is very hardy, productive, with fruit
that is good in flavor and keeps well.
But while Fireside is striped and
splashed red over yellow, Connell Red
is solid dark red in color.
