The story of Antonovka:
This is the classic Russian apple, a couple of centuries old, yet still revered as much as ever by Russians at home and all over the world. The epitome of multi-purpose, Antonovka is a tart fresh eating apple when it's first ripe, a more complex eating apple given a bit of time in storage and a popular baking apple throughout.
