Cultivar 'Geheimrat Dr. Oldenburg'

Geheimrat Dr. Oldenburg is a German apple cultivar. It was created in 1897 at the Höheren Lehranstalt für Obstbau of Geisenheim in the Rheingau by hybridisation of Minister von Hammerstein and Baumanns Renette.[1] It may also be known as Geheimrat Doktor Oldenburg, Geheimrat Oldenburg, or simply Oldenburg. It is a quite different apple from the older Russian cultivar Duchess of Oldenburg.
