[nafex] Itzstedter Apfel source

In the second edition of the Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory, I found 
an apple variety called Itzstedler Apfel (Prunterkroger) that has the 
following description...

"Quite unusual, sweet tart flavor with a hint of almond".

Anyone tasted this variety?  I never heard of "almond" being a flavor 
component of any apple.  The only source listed is the Living Tree 
Centre of Berkeley (no phone number listed).  I couldn't find any 
reference to this nursery on the internet.  Has anyone done business 
recently with this nursery?  They are also listed as the ones that 
discovered the variety Cinnamon Spice that has a "very rich, sharp 
cinnamon flavor which lasts in the mouth for some time".  Marketing 
hype, or do these flavorful apples really exist?
