Melrose, or White Melrose, is a large, ribbed, light yellow apple with a sweet sharp flavor. It is a good cooking apple, as it keeps its shape. Harvest begins in mid-September, and it does not keep for a long time.
Melrose has an unclear history, but was probably named for the Monks of Melrose Abbey, Scotland, who introduced the apple around 1830.
