Kavanagh Apple

Fall. Unknown parentage. James Kavanagh intro, Damariscotta Mills, Maine, 1790.

This unforgettable large apple is sometimes called Cathead because of its distinctive shape: a large stem end tapering to a small blossom end, typical of some Irish varieties. About half russet and half deep rich lime green. Slightly yellow flesh is mild, moderately crisp, moderately tart and subtle.

Good fall and early winter eating, excellent for cooking and drying. Even frying. Foams up quickly into a wonderful creamy sauce, no need to remove the skins.

Popular ages ago along the Maine coastal peninsulas, anywhere a schooner could land. Featured in 2014 in an extensive Maine Sunday Telegram article. Finally making its comeback! Blooms late. Z4-6. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
