For more than 200 years “Spitz” has been a choice dessert and culinary variety, mentioned in nearly every list of best-flavored apples. Slightly subacid, crisp and juicy. Excellent acid source for sweet or fermented cider. Medium-large bright red round-conic fruit, covered with russet dots.
Moderately vigorous tree with easily trained wide-angle branches. Forever famous as Thomas Jefferson’s favorite apple though it vastly prefers New York and New England to Virginia.
Moderately susceptible to scab though we have never sprayed ours with fungicides and the fruit has been great. Blooms mid-late season. Z4-7. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
All apple trees require a second variety for pollination.
