Fine fruit is the most perfect union of the useful and the beautiful that the earth knows.
INGRID MARIE came from the island of Fyn, Denmark, in 1910, and is thought to be a seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin. There are a number of sports available. The skin of this dessert fruit is greenish-yellow and almost completely covered with a dark, crimson flush. There is only a faint trace of stripes and some small russet patches. The lenticels are very large russet and white dots. Environmental conditions can cause cracking around the eye of the fruit. The white flesh is fine-grained, crisp and juicy. Ingrid Marie ripens in September.
