Edelborsdorferer is a very old apple variety, originating from central Europe - possibly from the area around the town of Borsdorf, near Leipzig, in the 16th century.
The variety is known by numerous other names. It was also grown in England where it was known as Queen Charlotte's apple after the wife of King George II. It may also have been used in an old English pudding recipe called "Apple Charlotte".
For such an old variety it has a surprisingly modern "bi-colored" appearance - it is a mid-size yellow-green apple with an attractive pink-red flush where the sun catches it.
The flesh is firm to crisp, and the flavor is sweet, with a wine-like tang.
