Winter. Unknown parentage. Paris, Oxford County, Maine, about 1790. This outstanding apple, a favorite long ago around much of Maine, has made a huge comeback. Our best seller until Honeycrisp came along.
Medium-sized round fruit, deep purple with a blackish bloom. From a distance you might think you’d discovered a huge plum tree. Excellent pies, superb late cider. Leave the skins on for a delightful pink sauce. Best eating late December to March, but we’ve eaten them in July and they were still quite firm and tasty. They get sweeter and sweeter as the months go by. Good cooking until early summer.
Some insect and disease resistance. Unusual light pink blooms early to midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees; dwarf: 2-5' bare-root trees)
