Liberty AppleLate Summer-Fall. NY 55140-19 [Macoun x PRI 54-12 (PRI Co-op complex cross includes Rome Beauty, Jersey Black, McIntosh, Wealthy and Malus floribunda)] NY Stn, 1978.
One of the best of the disease-resistant varieties, particularly in the Northeast. Somewhat similar to Macoun.
Handsome medium-sized round-conic bluish-pinkish-red apple with crisp white flesh of very good dessert quality when dead ripe. Excellent cooking and sweet cider, too. Recommended for single-variety sweet cider.
Keeps till late fall. Begins fruit production at an early age, bearing consistent heavy annual crops. Naturally well-structured sturdy tree is easy to care for.
Considered to be 100% scab-immune, though not resistant to insects or other lesser apple diseases. Don’t let it crop too heavily at a young age. Blooms early to midseason. Z4-6. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees; dwarf: 2-5' bare-root trees)
