One of our favorite midsummer cooking apples. Large flattish-conical ribbed bright yellow fruit often with a brownish blush. In central Maine they ripen toward the end of August and stay good into mid-September.
Unlike many other summer varieties, you can ripen them on the tree and let them drop—they won’t rot if you blink a couple times. In the morning you can go out to the tree, pick up the four or five that dropped overnight and put them to use. They cook up quick into morning applesauce; delicious with oatmeal. They also make an excellent pie.
Productive and mostly annual. Blooms early. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
