Legace Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Late Summer-Early Fall. Probably a Duchess seedling. Van Buren, Aroostook County, Maine, before 1907.
This is one of the best-tasting apples I’ve sampled on fruit exploration trips to Aroostook County. Although its true identity is yet to be determined, it perfectly fits WM Munson’s 1907 description in Preliminary Notes on the Seedling Apples of Maine.
Ripens in September and keeps for about a month. Medium-small roundish to slightly conic red-striped fruit. Very juicy yellowish flesh has some red along the core line and a subacid flavor. Not a sweet apple.
Medium-sized annually productive tree. No scab. Extremely hardy. Recommended for trial in coldest regions. Z3.
