Late Fall. From the seed of an unknown variety, planted c. 1930 in Harpswell, ME, on the occasion of the birth of Helen Norton.
We are very fond of these big all-purpose cooking apples. Large to very large fruit, roundish, ovate, sometimes a little oblate with a large deep abrupt basin. Green skin ripens to yellow by November with a faint blush and many small areolar green dots. In about 2010, Helen introduced the apple to Harpswell apple enthusiast Robert McIntyre, who shared it with John Bunker, who collected scionwood. The original tree has since died. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
