Product information "Redlove® Kohlhaas"

Redlove® Kohlhaas is small, but larger than Lollipop®; it is smaller than the other Redloves®, elongated and cylindrical. An apprentice once called it “rabbit head apple” due to its shape. The fruit ripens in mid-September; it is firm, very juicy, red and white marbled and at the time of harvest the inside is often full of juice, which is then stored in the fruit cells during storage. Redlove® Kohlhaas, like all other Redloves®, is resistant to scab and extremely fertile. Compared to all other varieties, the flavour is slightly fruity and sweeter.
The name Kohlhaas has developed associatively and consciously: associatively because of our intern, who always spoke of “rabbit head apple”, and consciously because of the name Kohlhaas, of course, which refers to Heinrich von Kleist's famous novel. In this narrative, the horse merchant Michael Kohlhaas has been treated unjustly. And when Kohlhaas fights for his right, yes, he indeed really sees red, unjustness occurs again. Justness turns (very quickly) to unjustness. Is it permitted to give an apple such a meaningful name? "Why not?" I ask back. In times when even apples need a passport and a registration, a bit of resistance is not a bad thing...(see also the Forbidden Apple).

What are Redloves®?
-the exclusive breeding by Lubera
-a new type of fruit beyond the apple
-the new flavour: refreshing with a hint of berry
-healthy, thanks to the red ingredients - anthocyanins
-beautiful, thanks to the pink flowers, red buds and red apples
-resistant to scab

Redloves® are the first good tasting, red-fleshed apples
Apple varieties. Wait, did I hear apple? No, actually the Redloves® are a new type of fruit that is just as distinguishable from the apple as nectarines and peaches or grapefruits and oranges. Although Redloves® look almost like normal apples from the outside, the skin’s fluorescent red colour already hints about the inside from the start; about the inside and other values of this new type of fruit. And this is what characterises the Redloves®:

Not only the red and sometimes pinkish red flesh, the wonderful markings in longitudinal and cross sections, but also a new aroma that is ultimately influenced by the red colouring agent and ingredients: a fresh fruitiness, with a hint of berry flavour, that characterises the sweet varieties. Beauty tastes good here...and is, thanks to the antioxidant colouring agent and ingredients that are several times more prevalent in the Redloves® than in apples, also healthy, too!

Redloves® are first of all, thanks to the sugar and the aroma, suitable for fresh enjoyment; in addition, there are also no limits to the imagination in the kitchen: from fruit salad to cake and slices of Redloves, fresh and cooked, up to red love-sauce (not oxidised) and dried Redlove® rings...Try it all! It’s a feast for the eyes and the palate!

Apple trees (Max)

Hello I have a question for you, what apple trees is sweeties, of variety redlove? Which kind of apple tree (redlove) is available to grow in the jar? do they all need pollination?

Feb 9, 2018

Apple trees (Sonja Dreher)

all apples need pollination, but if your neighbors have apple trees in their gardens, it would be ok for pollination. Or you can buy another Redlove Variety, or one of our Paradis apples.

What do you mean with "to grow in a jar"? Growing in a pot would be possible for 2-3 years, but then the tress need to planted in the ground.

The sweetest Redlove apple is "Odysso".

kind regards
your lubera team
