New Brunswicker Apple


New Brunswicker Apple

Late Summer. Thought to be a Duchess seedling. Francis Peabody Sharp intro, Upper Woodstock, NB, Canada, about 1855.

An excellent all-purpose extremely hardy variety for pies, sauce and everything else. Highly recommended for the northern grower. This is among the best. Medium-sized roundish fruit, red blushed and striped with a lot of light yellow ground color showing through. Sometimes confused with Duchess and often called New Brunswick Duchess.

DNA tests in 2019 indicated that our New Brunswicker is identical to Duchess. This opens up as many questions as it answers. Scionwood for our trees originally came from a tree in Houlton, ME. We love it and for now will continue to offer it. In the meanwhile, we are resuming the hunt for the true New Brunswicker. We will find you! Not susceptible to scab. Blooms early season. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
