Wealthy Apple

Fall. Cherry crab seedling. Excelsior, MN, 1860.

A Maine native of sorts, the seed having come from Bangor. Superb all-purpose fall apple, one of the most famous of all hardy varieties. With its perfect texture and complex flavors, Wealthy is considered to be one of the best apples. I agree.

Round-oblate medium-sized fruit is pale greenish-yellow streaked with carmine. About as firm as McIntosh. Tender very juicy sweet subacid flesh is white, often stained red.

Good eating and even better cooking. Wonderful pies! Good acid source for fermented cider.

Ripens over a long period. Productive moderately vigorous long-lived naturally small-statured tree. Blooms early. Z3-5. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
