Here is the first harvest of our cooking apples. The variety is Reinette du Canada, which is a heritage apple originating in France prior to 1800. I read that it is supposed to be a good dual purpose apple with medium sized fruit, esteemed in France for making apple tarts. Also keeps very well apparently (although these 4 won't!). 3 of our 4 fruit are quite big though, (see photo) so we'd probably only use the big ones for cooking.
