A massively flavored dessert apple, one of our favorites that we most look forward to each fall. Likely the most distinctive, complex and unusually flavored apple you’ll ever try. Astonished eaters have described it as tasting like molasses, olives, sugar cane, cheap whisky, yogurt, tobacco juice, and so on. We love it. The aromatic crisp crystalline apricot-orange flesh, with its occasional red staining, is so juicy it might run down your hand. The roundish fruit is medium-sized and entirely covered with dark bluish-purple stripes. Lost in the dustbin of weird apples for nearly 90 years before it was finally named and released.
Extremely hardy, productive and reliable; at its best in colder districts. A parent of the popular Sweet Sixteen and Keepsake, and grandparent to Honeycrisp. Blooms midseason. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees; dwarf: 2–5' bare-root trees)
