Pomme Grise Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall. Unknown origin. May have originated in Europe as early as the 17th century, and probably brought to Canada’s St. Lawrence Valley by French immigrants. Found its way into Maine about 150 years ago.
Medium-small russet fruit with a longtime reputation as one of the very best dessert apples. Firm, crisp, juicy, rich, subacid and aromatic, with interesting aftertastes. Superb fresh eating. The combination of the chalky russet and the green ground color give the skin its grey (grise) appearance.
Vigorous dense round spreading tree prefers northern locations. John’s has been consistently productive. Keeps fairly well, still crunchy in January. Blooms midseason. Z3.
