Oriole Apple


Oriole Apple

Late Summer. MN714 (Wealthy x MN Lowland Raspberry) U Minn, 1949. Like other apples bred at the U Minn farm in Excelsior, Oriole is extremely hardy and able to withstand the cold conditions of a Minnesota (or Maine!) winter.

Medium-to-large fruit is almost spherical, with orange-yellow skin splashed and striped with red. Cream-colored flesh is juicy, lightly acidic and surprisingly crisp for a summer apple. Good for fresh eating or cooking. Does not keep much more than a week after picking.

Blooms midseason. Z3. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
