Origin Denmark, 1910

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. Suspected for many years to originate from 'Cox's Orange Pippin', it was confirmed in 2003 to be a hybrid of 'Cox' and Danish cultivar 'Guldborg'.[1][2]

The apple has a red, firm skin and the color continues into the flesh underneath the skin. This suggests a relationship to the Reinette group of apples.[citation needed]

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