Medium-sized russet with little acidity is used for cider and makes excellent sauce. Leave the sweet tasty pear-like skins on when you cook them! Round long-stemmed fruit with yellow skin, mostly covered with a netting of russet. The ancient tree is located on Waterville city property and was brought to our attention in 2012 by former Fedco staffer Carol Godfrey. The tree was spared from a new highway exit, and the city gave us permission to collect fruit and care for the tree.
Ripens in early October and keeps only a few weeks. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
