Milden Apple


Milden Apple

Fall-Winter. Alton, NH, before 1813. Also called Milding and Winter Gravenstein.

All-purpose Baldwin-type variety popularized long ago for growing where Baldwin lacked hardiness. Still an excellent choice if you have a root cellar and are looking for the best choices for winter storage. Famous for winter pies. Large oblate-to-conic fruit mottled and splashed with bright red. The fine-textured whitish flesh, tinged with yellow, is coarse, quite juicy, sparkly, crisp and melting. Good for fresh eating and cooking.

Once fairly common in northern New England and still found in old Maine orchards. Recent work by Jared Kane, executive director of Branch Hill Farm in Milton Mills, NH, and others are focusing on bringing back Milden and other traditional New Hampshire varieties. Ripens late and keeps until spring. Large vigorous tree. Blooms midseason. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
