Wealthy Apple


Wealthy Apple

Malus spp. Fall. Thought to be a seedling of cherry crab, but recent DNA analysis proves old history wrong: one parent is Duchess. Excelsior, Minn., 1860.

A Maine native of sorts, the seed having come from Bangor. One of the most famous of all hardy varieties, with its perfect texture and complex flavors, all-purpose Wealthy is considered to be one of the best apples. We agree. Round-oblate medium-sized fruit is pale greenish-yellow streaked with carmine. Tender very juicy sweet subacid flesh is white, often stained red. About as firm as McIntosh. Good eating and even better cooking. Wonderful pies! Good acid source for fermented cider.

Ripens over a long period. Productive moderately vigorous long-lived naturally small-statured tree. Blooms early. Z3. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½–5' bare-root trees)
