Fletcher Sweet Apple


Fletcher Sweet Apple

Early Fall. Unknown parentage. Jonathan Fletcher Farm, Lincolnville, Maine, 19th century.

Medium solid green fruit looks like Tolman Sweet but with a russet netting and an occasional orange blush. Very white crystalline flesh with a slightly green tinge. Refreshing, mild, incredibly juicy and very crisp without being hard. Snaps when you take a bite.

The texture is reminiscent of an Asian pear, a water chestnut, or maybe a perfect radish. The flesh, however, dissolves in your mouth.

Makes a light-textured loose yellow sauce with a hint of blackberry. Discovered in the fall of 2002 with the help of Lincolnville historians Rosey Gerry and Diane O’Brien and local farmer Clarence Thurlow. More recently, we located a second specimen in nearby Hope.

Keeps until about December. No scab. Blooms midseason. Z4. LIMITED SUPPLY! (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
