Maiden Blush is one of the oldest American apples. Coxe wrote in 1817 that Maidenís Blush was popular in the Philadelphia markets of his day. Beautiful apple of pale thin skinned, lemon-yellow color with crimson blush. Flesh is white, sprightly, crisp and tender with a sharp, acid flavor that mellows when fully ripe. Maiden Blush is an excellent grower, comes into bearing young. Dependable producer, long harvest period, and displays resistance to fireblight.
