Winthrop Greening Apple


Winthrop Greening Apple

Late Summer-Fall. Ichabod Howe Farm, Winthrop, Maine, before 1800.

Large beautiful oblate all-purpose green fruit sporting a red-orange wash, small greenish dots and splashes of russet. Tender rich juicy flesh. Very interesting sweet flavor with medium-low acidity.

One of the few Maine apples to receive attention from outside the state over the years. Quite popular throughout central Maine as late as 1920; now all but unknown. Ichabod Howe (1731–;1810) laid out many of Winthrop’s roads, organized construction of its first church, was an accomplished trapper and hunter, served seven terms as selectman and was, appropriately enough, Winthrop’s first orchardist.

Blooms late. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
