Medium-sized roundish-conic fruit is reminiscent of Yarlington Mill in shape. Blushed orange and striped red with russet netting and patches of orange russet and large russet dots. Exceedingly beautiful. Very flavorful. Probably at its best around October 1 or a bit later. Rediscovered by Dan Newman and Laura Sieger in 2017 in an old Palermo orchard. Currently on trial in multiple central-Maine locations. Recommended for all cidermaking districts.
