Description

An medium sized red striped early apple that is crisp and juicy. Best known for its sweet tart flavor. Much better storage than other early apples. Excellent for fresh eating or cooking. Ripens in late August. A 1998 University of Minnesota introduction. Requires a different apple pollinator.

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 centred branching to allow for even light throught the tree. This allows even ripening of fruit. Prune broken or damaged limbs.
