A world renowned heirloom apple. Arriving in America in the 1700's, it's a terrific sauce and pie apple that ripens late August to early September. The color varies, but is usually greenish-yellow covered with broad red stripes. The creamy-white flesh is crisp, juicy, very aromatic and dense with old-fashioned tart-sweet flavor. The vigorous, highly productive trees usually need the fruit to be thinned for a good annual crop.
