Red Canada Apple


Red Canada Apple

Late Fall-Winter. Probably Worcester County, MA, before 1800. Very old American variety once common in much of Maine, Bangor south.

Firm, crisp, juicy, tender, aromatic: everything you want from a late-fall dessert apple. Large roundish-conic fruit, blushed dark red, striped red, and covered with large conspicuous light-colored spots.

Originally called Nonsuch, later Old Nonsuch, and by the mid 19th c., Red Canada, apparently from Massachusetts growers who took it across the border. Not to be confused with an entirely different Canadian apple called Canada Red! Our scionwood comes from Tower Hill Botanic Garden. Keeps all winter. Blooms late. Z3 or 4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
