Ingrid Marie is an apple cultivar.

It was cultivated by accident around 1910 on the premises of a school in Høed on the island of Funen in Denmark. It is a cross of the two English cultivars Cox's Orange Pippin and Cox's Pomona.[1]

The apple has a red, firm skin and the color continues into the flesh underneath the skin.

'Ingrid Marie' trees grow very well in a moderate warm and humid climate.
