Api apple


An old, very small, hard, crisp, slightly ribbed western European apple, apparently found in the forest of Api in France and having yellow skin blushed with red, and tart flavour. It was recorded in France as early as 1628. It is the same thing as the Lady Apple of North Armerica. It is a late-season apple, harvested from mid-October in South-East England, is stored and is at its best from December to April.
