Rescue X Melba. Looks like Red Delicious but has nice sweet/tart flavor. Somewhat smaller stature tree is very precocious. Crisp early when only partly red. Fully ripe fruit is very red, sweet, but develops internal browning when over ripe. Will keep quite well for a summer apple if picked at the red striped stage or earlier. Moderate scab susceptibility. Extremely cold hardy, into zone 2. One of the few varieties for places like interior Alaska. Very large white blossoms.
