The red apple

The red apple

A beautiful red apple amongst the other apples. It does directly attract your attention, because all Rubens apples are provided with a white-with-green label showing prominently its name: ‘Rubens’. Does the name of the apple refer to Rubens, the famous Flemish painter known for his love painting buxom women? Further research shows that the Rubens apple is (according test panels) the most popular apple and available on the shelves until next year February. The red colour does make the difference: the name ‘Rubens’ has evolved from the Latin word for ‘red’. And according to supplier Inova Fruit the Rubens apple has a bright red colour, is full of sunshine and the most tasteful apple around, and is consumed by people that enjoy the good things of life.
