Limelight is a relatively new variety, bred by Hugh Ermin and introduced in 1980. It is an improved Greensleeves. It is quite a large, disc shaped, apple with an excellent skin finish. Colour can vary depending on how much light the fruit gets, resulting in a pinkish yellow blush on the side that faces the sun. It has a refreshing and slightly sharp flavour, a nice firm texture and plenty of juice.
