Ingrid Marie is a late dessert apple of Danish origin. It crops well, and needs a pollinator. The apple is best eaten straight from the tree, with its softish flesh and not excessively intense flavour.
Ingrid Marie is a chance seedling, a Cox’s Orange Pippin cross. It was found in 1910 at a school on the island of Fyn, Denmark, and it was named after a schoolteacher’s daughter. The variety became popular in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. In 2003, DNA analysis showed that Ingrid Marie is a cross between Cox’s Orange Pippin and the Danish variety Guldborg.
