Briggs Auburn Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Selected by Thomas Record, Auburn, ME, before 1849. Subsequently named for John Briggs of Auburn by Dr. Holmes, editor of Maine Farmer.
Large round-oblate clear yellow fruit with glowing greenish shading and a slight blush. All-purpose apple with a bright well-balanced flavor including hints of banana and blackberry.
Superior fresh eating well into winter and top-notch cooking. Peel it and it’s highly aromatic. Produces a thick creamy golden-yellow medium-sweet sauce. Excellent in oatmeal. In a pie, the slices lose their shape but the crust won’t sink and pie doesn’t get watery.
Medium-large reliably bearing productive tree. Recently we’ve suspected that Brigg’s Auburn may have been called Naked Limbed Greening in Waldo County where our scionwood comes from. Blooms midseason. Z4.
