D’arcy Spice apple tree originated a garden at Tolleshunt D’arcy, Essex in 1785. Great flavor in a plain package. The D’arcy Spice apple has a yellow-green skin, flushed with russet patches surrounding a fine, firm crisp flesh with subtle spicy ‘nutmeg’ flavor. Russet aficionados often enjoy the texture of D’arcy Spice apples. One of the favorites at our apple tastings a few years back.
