Fruity aroma, sweet, reliable; a classic heirloom apple from Iowa in 1892. Not impressive from the grocery store, and not as popular as it used to be, but when homegrown and tree-ripened it is actually quite crisp, juicy and tasty. Makes excellent apple butter, but not a pie apple. We include it for two reasons: we have seen it produce exceptionally large, delicious and good quality fruits even on neglected trees here in Central KY, attesting to it’s resilience and disease-resistance, and, people still want it and ask for it. A solid home-orchard and commercial choice and time-tested variety. Don’t knock it till you’ve homegrown it.
