Crisp, spicy, juicy flesh and highly aromatic. One of many fine old apples to have in originated in the Brushy Mt. Region of northwest North Carolina, and a former commercial apple of that region. A fine eating apple with bright yellow skin with a dull red wash and some russet on the skin. Very good keeper. Tree has a lovely, sturdy yet somewhat slightly weeping form (aka limbertwig).  Fruit ripens in October-November. Circa 19th century.
