Wolf River Apple

Fall. Alexander seedling. Near Wolf River, Wisconsin, 1875.

Perhaps the most famous old-time apple in Maine, likely due to its catchy name and its extremely large—even huge—round-oblate fruit. Pale yellow-green skin mostly covered with pink, deep red and bright crimson with a vivid yellowish-greenish russety splash around the stem. Creamy-white coarse firm but tender flesh.

Aromatic subacid flavor is very good for cooking. Makes an excellent baked apple and a decent pie. Not much good for fresh eating, but particularly tasty when dried. Keeps until late fall.

Large moderately vigorous productive spreading tree. Excellent scab resistance. Blooms mid to late season Z3-5. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
