Kandil Sinap Apple

Fall-Winter. Discovered on the Sinap peninsula of the Black Sea in Turkey, 1700s.

Distinct and unusually shaped apples look like no other—elongated, tall and narrow fruit is almost cylindrical, with yellow porcelain-like skin and bright red blush. Uniform shape makes it easy to peel, and the crisp juicy flesh is sweet-tart with high flavor. The trees themselves have a natural pyramidal form and are a nice size for smaller gardens and yards. Fruit explorer and orchardist Matt Kaminsky (aka Gnarly Pippins) found these gems at Mountain Orchard in Granville, MA, and described them as “DIVINE.” Scions were brought to this orchard in the Berkshires by their Moldovan crew leader, who introduced the apple by the name Senapka. Popular in Russian markets in the 1900s and found in heirloom collections here and there in the U.S. Stores well. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
