Chestnut Apple


Chestnut Apple

Early Fall. MN 240 (Malinda x open-pollinated) U Minn, 1946.

A dessert crab with truly excellent fruit for fresh eating, pickles and sauce. Round 2" yellow and bronze-red apple with some russeting. Firm crisp juicy fine-grained very sweet yellowish flesh.

For a growing number of people in central Maine, late September is Chestnut apple time. Always scores high at our Common Ground Country Fair taste tests. A lot of people love this apple. For a few, despite its crispness and depth of flavor, it is too sweet. Chestnut alone with no sugar makes a sweet and subtle sauce.

Not a keeper, but can be stored for a month or two. Vigorous, somewhat weeping, medium-sized productive tree tends to bear annually. Disease resistant. Also beautiful in bloom, mid-late season. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; dwarf: 2-5' bare-root trees)
