Arkansas Black Apple




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.
