Kaiser Franz Joseph Apples
Inventory, lb : 0
Kaiser Franz Joseph apples are distinctive from other varieties because of their very prominent ribbing and bright green skin. The skin of this variety also has some bright orange-red blushing. The Kaiser Franz Joseph apple is similar to the Calville Blanc d’Hiver, although the latter is smaller and brighter yellow. The white-yellow flesh is fairly juicy, with a sweet and intensely fruity taste lending well to eating Kaiser Franz Joseph fresh out of hand. The tree is of medium vigor and crops well, producing many fruits.
Kaiser Franz Joseph apples are available in the fall through winter.
The Kaiser Franz Joseph apple is an heirloom German variety of Malus domestica, named after the early twentieth century Austro-Hungarian leader. This variety of apple is also known as the Francois Joseph apple.
Apples such as the Kaiser Franz Joseph contain fiber in multiple forms. The soluble fiber in apples prevent heart disease by stopping cholesterol buildup in blood vessels. The insoluble fiber, which remains undigested, passes through the intestinal tract and keeps the digestive system healthy. Apples also contain Vitamin C and other nutrients in smaller amounts.
This is a dessert apple variety, best enjoyed fresh out hand. Pair with vegetables like cabbage, beets, and celery in savory salads, or oranges, pears, and cranberries for a sweet salad. Combine with caramel, raisins, maple syrup, and nuts for a sweet treat. Kaiser Franz Joseph apples will last for a few weeks in the refrigerator.
The name of this apple contains a lot of history. It comes from Franz Joseph, the emperor of Austria and King of Hungary from the mid 1800s until 1916. He is probably best known for uniting Austria and Hungary, and his alliance with Germany (Prussia) in 1879. He was the uncle of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, whose assassination led to the start of World War I.
The exact origin of the Kaiser Franz Joseph is unknown, but they were likely first grown in Germany and are connected to the region of Austria and Hungary, since they are named after a former emperor. Kaiser Franz Joseph apples grow well in the climates of interior western Europe.
