Twenty Ounce

Twenty Ounce Apple

Fall. Cayuga, NY, before 1845.

Very large (20 ounces!) high-quality pie and general cooking apple. Sometimes mistakenly called Twenty Ounce Pippin.

Huge roundish fruit is mostly red-and-orange striped and slightly greasy. Fills the October niche between the early season and the late season cooking apples.

Tasty and perfectly textured in a pie. Your crust will never sink. Tart sauce cooks up medium-fast. Very good dried.

Can be as big as a Wolf River and some orchards confuse the two, but they are quite different. Twenty Ounce never has a large russet splash around the stem. Wolf River is considerably more oblate (flattened) and pinker.

We still find old Twenty Ounce trees here and there in central and northern Maine. Blooms early midseason. Z4-7. Maybe even Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
