S.R.F. | Cameo Apples | Cache Valley, No Spray | 3 lbs.
Cameo is tapered with an attractive variegated red blush over yellow. Even after considerable storage, the unbroken apple is firm and quite fragrant, with tropical-fruit notes.
The flesh is a mellow yellow, on the coarse side and crisp. (My sample is a bit tender.) Despite the promise of its aroma the flavor is mild, sweet with a little tempering tartness. There is a fleeting hint of pear and something creamy, like vanilla caramel.
