Franc Rambour

IMG_1107-001

 

The Franc Rambour was a popular apple in colonial America but has its origin in a village in France, circa 1535, for which it was named.  Over time the name of the apple evolved to Summer Rambour (due to its early harvest) which was shortened to Summer Rambo before 1850.  It should not be confused with the Rambo apple of Swedish orgin which is sometimes referred to as the Winter Rambo.  The Franc Rambour is a large green apple with red stripes that is very crisp, tart, juicy and aromatic.
