Moses Wood Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Summer. Unknown parentage. Winthrop, Maine, before 1847.
Late-summer dessert and cooking apple, medium-sized, roundish to conic with distinct ribbing and lobes around the calyx end. Light yellow skin with a pink blush and red stripes. White medium- to fine-grained tender very juicy flesh, definitely subacid. Excellent tart fresh eating. That tartness also adds a kick to its early season pies.
Vigorous upright productive tree. Named for the itinerant Winthrop grafter who traveled on horseback spreading apple varieties around central Maine long before the days of Fedco. Blooms midseason. Z4.
