History and description of Teton de Demoiselle

Teton de Demoiselle apple probably arose in France and was first recorded in 1895 by Nurseryman Simon-Louis Freres. The apple has a pinky red flush with stripes and is, as the name suggests, breast shaped. The nearly yellow flesh is sweet, scented, and quite rich.
