Yellow Bellflower Apple


Yellow Bellflower Apple

Malus spp. Winter. Parentage unknown. Crosswicks, Burlington County, New Jersey, about 1742.

Large conical pure-yellow fruit does everything well, including keeping all winter in the root cellar. Firm, crisp, moderately fine-grained, rather tender, juicy, aromatic, very good for culinary use and good for fresh eating, especially after it’s mellowed for a month or two. Excellent for pies. Applesauce cooks quickly, somewhat coarse, bright glistening yellow with great flavor and chewy skins. We also love it dried: it’s balanced and flavorful.

One of the first named American varieties and one of the first apples to be grafted and planted in Maine. Incredibly long-lived. When you find a truly ancient apple tree in Maine, there’s a pretty good chance it’ll be a Yellow Bellflower.

Blooms early-midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
