The Welschisner , also called Großer Böhmischer Brünnerling , Welschecker , Steiner or Welsch Weinling , is a cultivar of the cultivated apple .

The Welschisner is one of the old apple varieties; it is one of the so-called economy apples. It emerged as a chance seedling in Upper Austria around 1600 and is a climate-resistant variety that still produces good yields even on poor soils. It is therefore also suitable for high altitudes and for cultivation on orchards .

The apples ripen in mid-October and keep until May if stored appropriately.
