Dependable, VERY disease-resistant, long-keeping apple of excellent quality. Attractive deep maroon, nearly black skin color with crisp yellow flesh. Delicious, moderately sweet and mild-flavored dessert apple which also makes very good juice, hard cider and pies. Extremely good keeper: wrapped up in refrigeration it keeps in perfect condition all winter into spring. Well adapted to the Southeastern climate and conditions, highly recommended for organic and low-spray growing. Likely a seedling of Winesap. Growing in popularity right now due to hardiness, disease resistance, good flavor, versatility and excellent keeping quality. Very resistant to Cedar Apple rust disease.
All of our apple trees are FIELD-GROWN for high-quality and have excellent, robust, natural root systems.
