Daniel Fele Renets are large apples, globose in shape. The skin is a greenish-yellow background overlaid with red stripes. Inside, the white, creamy flesh is crisp and coarse. The flavor of the Daniel Fele Renet is nutty, sweet, and rich—overall, it is subacidic and comparable to (though slightly sharper than) the Blenheim Orange apple.
Daniel Fele Renet apples are available in the late fall through winter.
Daniel Fele Renet apples are a little-known variety of Malus domestica originally from Hungary.
Apples are an excellent part of a healthy diet, providing plenty of fiber and some nutrients that contribute to overall health and may prevent chronic disease. One medium apple contains about 17% of the recommended daily value of fiber, which takes the form of both insoluble and soluble fiber. Apples also contain Vitamin C, other antioxidants, and potassium.
Pair apples with traditional spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger; other fruits such as citrus and cranberry; or nuts such as walnuts, chestnuts, and hazelnuts. Apples will last longer stored in a cool, dry place such as the refrigerator.
The name “Renet” is an English version of the common type of apple called “Reinette” in French. Reinette means little queen. Many apples particularly of French origin are called Reinettes, such as the Ananas Reinette and the Reine de Reinette. The word may originally come from the Latin word “renatus,” which means “rebirth.” This could possibly an allusion to an apple varieties status as a cultivar, or a variety that has been grafted on to another tree. The name may also come from the French word “rainette,” or frog, referring to an apple’s speckled skin.
The National Fruit Collection in England received a sample of Daniel Fele Renet apple in 1948, from the University of Agriculture in Budapest, Hungary.
