Arabskoe Apple Mid-Late Fall. Probably Russia, well before 1870. Also called Arabkoe and Arabka.

Dessert and cooking apple. Good tartness with a pleasant lingering sweetness. Roundish conic barrel-shaped fruit. A stunning apple: lavender to dusky rose with a purply-pink blush, a light bloom, and russet around the stem.

In 1870 the USDA imported 252 apple varieties from Russia in a frenzied attempt to locate hardy apples. The Russian names were soon mixed up beyond repair. We think this is Arabskoe, which was grown out in varietal trials overseen by WA Munson at UMaine.

We discovered the small but ancient apple tree on the Guptill Road in Belgrade, Maine, so for awhile we called it Guptill Lavender. Uncertain bloom time. Probably Z3-6. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
