Looking for early color in a Jonathan? Then look to Ruby Jon for red color that starts mid-July and finishes by August 1 in North Central Washington. That puts it well into the game before other Red Jonathan sports. The red striping over the greenish-yellow ground color makes a great presentation. And the fruit still has the slightly tart flavor Jonathan lovers want. Crisp, juicy and delicious.
