One of the most famous of all European heirlooms. Excellent fresh eating and good for cooking. Very large, even huge, round-conic, sometimes lopsided, greenish-bronze russeted fruit with a red-orange blush. Similar to Pomme Grise in color, but much larger. Quite visible light whitish russet spots cover the entire fruit. A very attractive apple. Firm white fine-grained flesh with a rich nutty intense sweet-sharp flavor—fruity with hints of raspberry. Keeps well until midwinter and sweetens up in storage.
Productive upright vigorous tree. Triploid: will not pollinate other varieties. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
