Malus spp. Fall-Early Winter. Sweet Greening x Old Russet. Dorchester, Mass., before 1700. Sometimes called Talman Sweet, Taulman Sweet, Tomey Sweet and many other variations.
One of the first American apples and one of the few to remain popular for centuries. Truly an all-purpose fruit, used for cider, cooking, dessert and even animal fodder. Once popular for pickling, boiling and baking. Especially prized in Maine for apple cake. Unforgettably peculiar sweet strange flavor. Very low acidity.
Moderately juicy medium-sized greenish fruit, sometimes with a bit of a blush and often marked by a distinct suture line running from stem to stern. Long-lived heavy-bearing vigorous tree. Still often found throughout central and southern Maine. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
