Duchess was planted extensively wherever growers needed extreme hardiness. It’s still quite popular in northern New England. Highly esteemed for all sorts of cooking; Duchess is one of the best of all pie apples. Cooks up quickly into a creamy delicious sauce.
Medium-sized round red-striped fruit. Firm fine-grained crisp tender juicy subacid aromatic flesh. Small to medium-sized adaptable tree.
May not do well in warmer districts. Duchess seedlings are used as an extremely hardy rootstock called Borowinka. Scab resistant. Blooms early-midseason. Z3-4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
All apple trees require a second variety for pollination.
