Liveland Raspberry Apple


Liveland Raspberry Apple

Summer. Originated in Estonia where it is known as Suislepper, imported to the U.S. from Russia in 1870. Also called Lowland Raspberry.

One of the hardiest and finest summer apples. Still found here and there in Maine dooryards and farm orchards. Unlike many summer apples, which are tart and hard and green one day and soft and mushy the next, Liveland Raspberry is actually crisp and breaking when it’s ripe and stays that way just long enough to use and enjoy the crop.

Medium to large round fruit with very tender clear waxen white skin is striped, shaded and marbled with light crimson. The white flesh, often stained red, is tender, mild, pleasant, subacid, almost sweet.

One of the best varieties for summer fresh eating and of course for cooking. Ripens up here toward the later part of August. Will not store.

Vigorous productive small to medium-sized tree. Disease and pest resistant. Early to midseason bloomer. Z3. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
