Wagener Apple


Wagener Apple

Winter. Unknown parentage. Penn Yan, NY, 1791.

Midwinter all-purpose storage variety widely grown in Maine during the 19th and early 20th c. Bright medium-sized blocky angular ribbed roundish yellow fruit mostly covered with a red blush of dots and stripes. Fine-grained, crisp, tender, very juicy, subacid, aromatic and sprightly.

Naturally small tree was traditionally planted as a filler between large standard trees. The Wageners would fruit young and eventually be removed when the big Baldwins kicked in. Precocious annually bearing tree produces very heavily. The fruit lines up along the branches so thickly you’ve got to look hard to see any wood. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
