Burford’s Red Flesh – Virginia, USA

Burford’s Red Flesh is one of the many varieties pioneered by seventh-generation orchardist Tom Burford of Virginia.  This chance seedling was found at the home of Patrick Henry’s mother in Amherst County, Virginia.  Although this small apple is crisp and tart, it lacks the balance of fresh eating varieties, which makes this variety most useful in the kitchen.  Burford’s Red Flesh is often used as a small portion of sauces, chutneys, and ciders to give a magnificent pink blush to the final product.
