Description

Spring flowering is white with a pinkish tint. Pale yellowish green fruit with a dull red blush. Flesh is fairly crisp and slightly tart. Good for cooking and eating fresh. Ripens in late August. Moderately good storing.

Prefers a moist, well-drained soil. Requires a different apple variety within 150m (500') for cross-pollination. Early spring bloom is fragrant.

Care Instructions

Water regularly as needed. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer prior to new spring growth. When young, prune to create an open centered branching to allow for even light throughout the tree. This allows even ripening of fruit. Prune broken or damaged limbs.
