Liberty
Liberty Apple Late Summer-Fall. NY 55140-19 [Macoun x PRI 54-12 (PRI Co-op complex cross includes Rome Beauty, Jersey Black, McIntosh, Wealthy and Malus floribunda)] NY Stn, 1978.

One of the best of the disease-resistant varieties, particularly in the Northeast. Somewhat similar to Macoun.

Handsome medium-sized round-conic bluish-pinkish-red apple with crisp white flesh of very good dessert quality when dead ripe. Excellent cooking and sweet cider, too. Recommended for single-variety sweet cider.

Keeps till late fall. Begins fruit production at an early age, bearing consistent heavy annual crops. Naturally well-structured sturdy tree is easy to care for.

Considered to be 100% scab-immune, though not resistant to insects or other lesser apple diseases. Don’t let it crop too heavily at a young age. Blooms early to midseason. Z4-6. All are Maine Grown. (3-6' trees, except Bud 9 stock is 2-5'.)

Additional Information

Apples

All apple trees require a second variety for pollination, but any apple or crabapple blooming at the same time, within a quarter mile, will probably do.

Planting distance depends on the rootstock:
Plant standard trees (A) 25-30' apart.
Plant Bud 118 (B) rootstocks 20-25' apart.
Plant M111 (C) rootstocks 15-20' apart.
Plant Bud 9 (D) rootstocks 5-10' apart.

Each apple variety has a climate range where it will thrive and produce its best fruit. At the end of each apple description we list a range of zones. For example, Z3-4 signifies that this apple will reach perfection in Zones 3 and 4 and that we don’t recommend it farther south even though it would be plenty hardy. Z4-6 means that this apple will reach perfection in Zones 4, 5 or 6. Although we have received reports from southern areas that some of our rarest Maine apples are thriving, we suggest you use this guide to select apples most appropriate to your area.

Varieties bearing annually are noted; others normally bear every other year. With diligent annual pruning and thinning, most apples will produce an annual crop, one heavy, the next light.
