Rubens®

The Rubens® is a cross between the tasty varieties Gala and Elstar.
Its crisp texture and fresh aroma comes from the Elstar, while Gala gives it its pleasantly sweet taste. The Rubens® has aromas of pear and some banana, with low acidity and slight astringency.

Andreas Gschleier abaout the Rubens®

The club variety Rubens® has a similar market profile as Elstar and isoften considered its substitute. Besides Gala and Elstar, Rubens® is another apple that ripens very early in the season and is harvested already at the end of August in South Tyrol.
