Some fruits have an orange blush over some of the surface. The light yellow flesh is crisp, juicy, and fine grained. The Ananas Reinette stands out most for its intense pineapple-like flavor, which develops toward the end of the season and over time in storage. There are also notes of honey, pear, citrus, and grapes. The sweetness of this apple also develops over time, though it maintains a pleasant acidity.
