Cora’s Grand Greening Apple


Cora’s Grand Greening Apple

Fall. Unknown parentage, probably originated on North Haven Island, Maine, before 1850.

Very large or even huge green blocky deeply ribbed high-quality all-purpose fruit often with a brilliant pinkish-red blush. It hardly looks like an apple. More like gigantic bell peppers on a tree. It’s become one of our favorites. Cook it up, or eat it fresh. It’s tart and quite tasty.

Brought to our attention by Becky Bartovics whose farm is defined by the tree that’s been leaning downwind for more than 100 years. Not knowing if it had a proper name, Becky named it after Cora Ames, the single woman who farmed the property in the 19th century. One of many ancient Maine-island varieties that only made it to the mainland in very recent years.

Incredibly rugged, long-lived and scab free. Triploid: not suitable for pollinating other varieties. Blooms early-midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
