Apple 'Hofingers Himbeerapfel', mid September. "Dessert, November to March, rather large, round, slightly rounded to eye. Colour, pale yellow, shaded nearlly all over with rich carmine, approaching 'Gascoynes Seedling' in colour. Flesh, greenish-white, slight musky flavour. Eye, closed, in a very deep and slightly irregular basin. Stem, short <br />
and stout, in a moderately deep cavity, rather irregular in shape. Growth, compact, upright spreading. Leaf, <br />
upheld and upfolded, regularly crenate. Origin, found by Liegel in the Rev. Hofinger's garden, at St. Peters, Brunau, before 1851. Of no merit except for its lovely colour." (A HANDBOOK OF HARDY FRUITS MORE COMMONLY GROWN IN <br />
