Medium-sized, conical fruit with dull finish of red stripes over thing, tough, smooth orange skin. Firm, tender, juicy, aromatic, yellow flesh. Distinctive flavor that is considered a taste to rate other apples by. Excellent in hand as well as for processing for desserts, pies, cooking and cider. Keeps from October to January in good conditions. Requires thinning yearly. Blooms late, good for late frost areas. Scab susceptible, will require more attention than most apples we sell, but for those who put in the effort, you will be rewarded!
