The Carlos Queen is a unique Albertan-bred apple, boasting a vibrant green hue and subtle red blush averaging 8 cm (3") in diameter size. The apples have a delicate sweetness with crunchy creamy flesh, making them a perfect companion for pies, juice and enjoying fresh!
Ripe for picking around mid-late September, these apples are good keepers and store up to 3 months in cold storage, and their natural semi-dwarf size trees make them easy to grow and manage.
Carlos Queen was named after the former post office in Clearwater County and released in 1972 by Robert Erskine.
