King David

King David Apple

Fall-Winter. Chance seedling, thought to be Jonathan x Arkansas Black, Washington County, Arkansas, 1893. Stark Brothers Nursery intro, 1904.

King David has a reputation as an intensely flavored apple. It may be the most flavorful apple I’ve ever eaten. The initial bite is an explosion of flavors—pineapple, tangerine, lemon, sweet, sour, tart, sharp, aromatic and spicy. You may wince or moan or scream. You may see stars.

Fine juicy flesh is firm yet tender and distinctly yellow. Medium-sized round-oblate-conic fruit is very dark solid maroon—nearly black.

Occasionally found in old Maine orchards. The tree is vigorous, bearing young and regularly. Ripens in fall and keeps until the beginning of the year. Its one drawback is scab susceptibility. We grow it anyway.

Blooms early-midseason. Z4-8. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
