Small (2"), conic and green with a few reddish stripes and a russet stem splash that spills out of the cavity and a bit over the sides. The fruit is quite astringent, bitter and wooly with flavors of banana and black tea.
This was a standout during our excursion to the USDA ARS apple collection in Geneva, NY, in the fall of 2016. Fruit had a Brix of 18.2 (SG 1.076). On trial at our orchard in Palermo since 2017. It has been hardy and vigorous but has not yet fruited. We recommend it for trial in most northern districts. Zone 4 or 5. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
