This relatively unknown dessert apple has an avid following among commercial and home orchardists here in Maine and throughout the Northeast. The large oblong-conic yellow fruit blushed with light scarlet red is crisp, firm, juicy and sweet. Grower Phil Norris says it has “all the sprightliness of Golden Delicious combined with the incomparable sweet-tart ambrosia of a perfectly ripe Mac.”
Ripens after McIntosh and keeps relatively well. The tree is vigorous, upright-spreading and annually bearing. Blooms midseason. Z4.
