Neat History:

            A chance seedling grew in 1885 near Hausen, Bade Württemberg on a site overlooking the Zaber River with likely parentage of a Canadian Reinette. Zabergäu references the site, and Reinette is alternately used to refer to the richness of the juice or apple trees grown from seed.
