Not for fresh eating but an excellent bittersweet for blending in hard cider. Juicy firm cream-colored quite bitter very astringent flesh has a very high sugar content. (SG 1.069, acidity 2.3g/L, tannin 3.5g/L)
Steve Wood of Poverty Lane Orchards and Farnum Hill Ciders in Lebanon, NH, called it “a lovely little apple with nice juice, interesting, aggressively tannic.” Small conic green partially russeted fruit with a dull orange blush. Not very well known and rarely included in the literature.
Blooms mid-to-late season. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
