History and description of Red Sauce

Red Sauce apple was raised in 1910 by R Wellington at the New York State Agricultural Experimental Station from a Deacon Jones x Wealthy. It was introduced in 1926. It has pink stained flesh when fully ripe and cooks to a sharp well flavoured puree. Hence the name Red Sauce. It may also be made into an attractive pink jelly or pressed to produce a pink apple juice. Good cropper producing and a moderately vigorous tree.
