Zabergau Reinette was raised at Hausen on the Zaber, Wurttember, Germany, from seed sown in 1885. The greenish-yellow skin is flushed orange with bright-red stripes, and heavily overlaid with a rough, yellow-brown russet. The yellowish flesh is fine-grained and firm with a subacid flavor. It is round to conical in shape, sometimes lopsided and medium in size. The flavor is sometimes described as rich and nutty. Zabergau ripens in September.
