Canadian Strawberry Apple


Canadian Strawberry Apple

Fall. Unknown parentage. Solon, Maine.

Beautiful superb-tasting dessert apple. Surprisingly juicy distinctly tart full-flavored medium-to-large round-conic fruit. Rich buttery-yellow skin overspread with a veil of vibrant red-orange. Very good early season cider.

Perfectly ripe at the end of September in central Maine where, in a good year, you won’t find a better apple. At our Common Ground Fair taste tests, it usually vies for the crown with Cox’s Orange Pippin. It was the overwhelming favorite in 2017 and runner-up in 2018 and 2019.

In 1996 the late Roy Slamm convinced John Bunker to visit and subsequently propagate nursery stock from the three ancient “Strawberry” trees on his South Solon farm, thus saving the apple from almost certain extinction. Now spreading throughout Fedcoland.

Fruit keeps about a month. Blooms midseason. Not to be confused with Chenango Strawberry. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
