Entirely deep purple with no stripes or ground color. Its conic shape and uniform color distinguishes its appearance from Black Oxford, which is considerably rounder and multi-hued. Crisp juicy firm yellowish flesh is quite tart right off the tree but mellows and sweetens in storage for better fresh eating. A nice cooking apple and said to be good in cider. Keeps all winter. A beloved apple in the South, and some growers have had success with it here in central Maine. Mid-to-late bloomer. Z5, maybe Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
