Apple Rose is an elderly Earth pony and a member of the Apple family who first appears in the season three episode Apple Family Reunion. She is Granny Smith's favorite cousin.


During Raise This Barn in Apple Family Reunion, Apple Rose was to have incidentally appeared young; this was caught by Tim Stuby.[1]

Depiction in the series

Apple Rose appears in the season three episode Apple Family Reunion. Granny Smith first mentions her at the beginning of the episode when she shows Applejack and Apple Bloom a photo album of past reunions. In one flashback, she laughs at a young Granny when she tries to take up quilting. In another, she and Granny compete together in a seven-legged race. Though they trip over their own hooves and lose, they happily laugh it off.

At the present day reunion, Apple Rose steps off a carriage after Candy Caramel Tooth, "Apple Squash" and "Red June", and she greets Granny Smith with a hug. During the reunion, she quilts—for a lengthy period of time—with Granny and Auntie Applesauce using sewing machines provided by Applejack.

When Applejack's overeager reunion plans result in the destruction of Sweet Apple Acres' barn, Apple Rose takes part in the barn's reconstruction during the song Raise This Barn. She then appears in the family group photo in front of the finished barn, and she is last seen laughing with Granny Smith and Auntie Applesauce.

The younger Apple Rose appears in flashback in The Perfect Pear.

In Grannies Gone Wild, Apple Rose joins Granny Smith, Auntie Applesauce, and Goldie Delicious on their annual trip to Las Pegasus, during which she is revealed to be hard of hearing.

In season nine, Apple Rose appears living at the Silver Stable Retirement Community in The Point of No Return.

Enterplay trading card series 2 #18, a card of Auntie Applesauce & Apple Rose, lists her name with a trademark symbol and gives her the part of the description, "When it comes to her cousins, Granny's favorite is definitely Apple Rose.
