A nearly perfect all-purpose apple for those in northernmost areas. Pleasant sprightly subacid flavor for fresh eating, pies, baking, sauce, freezing and cider. Roundish-conic bright red striped to mostly solid red fruit, with moderately conspicuous dots and some russeting. White firm crisp juicy flesh.
Highly productive and reliable. Harvest in October, keeps until March. Extremely hardy naturally small tree with a strong central leader and well-formed wide-angled branching habit. Sets fruit heavily; thin some of the small apples to ensure larger fruit and encourage annual cropping. Fruit quality and size also seem to respond to better soils.
Exhibits resistance to apple maggot, codling moth, cedar apple rust, fire blight, even scab. Blooms late. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
