Zabergau Reinette is a winter russet apple with a strong rich flavor. It is harvested towards the end of October but at this point the flavor is very "green" and nettle-like. It improves after a month or so in cold storage and the flavor then sweetens, but remains pleasantly intense.
As well as its rather handsome apples, Zabergau Reinette produces an abundance of attractive blossom in spring.
