This scion was from HOS scion exchange in 2016. I grafted onto a tree that is mainly Sutton Beauty, but also has Liberty, and Baldwin. I don't know the rootstock. The main tree was the first apple tree that I grafted at the HOS grafting class a few years ago. The Airlie Red Flesh graft took well, grew fast, bloomed this spring, and now there is a handful of apples ready to pick. They are delightful to cut open, have a nice sprightly flavor, a touch tart and sweet, a bit fruity, crisp and juicy. I'm not a world expert, but couldn't ask for a better apple as far as flavor or texture.
These apple are about the size of a Jonathan or Liberty in my orchard, and have sort of a "Red Delicious" oblong shape.
They do brown a little fast after cutting - not the fastest, but noticed in about 15 min.
