Our favorite apple for eating fresh. Bears early, even precociously, so thin the fruit aggressively on young branches! Here in the Bay Area (Zone 9) it ripens in late August.

Bears well and little insect damage (I don't spray). Fruit ripens late and holds on the tree very well, even in the Bay Area of California. I often pick them for pie on Thanksgiving day! A wonderful apple in sauce, pies, and fresh if you like tart apples. Extends the season nicely. ...

Extremely prolific bearer. Fruit is sweet and crunchy, but lacks the acidity and complexity of some apples like Honeycrisp. Good in applesauce with tart Pippins to sweeten them. Very little insect damage from coddling moths.
Grown in the Bay Area of N. California....

Such a fine eating apple! The complexity of the flavor is amazing. Kind of like fruit salad. There are hints of all kinds of fruit, like pineapple and banana, as well as tart-sweet apple. I have not cooked with this as we eat them all fresh. Grown in the Bay Area of N California....
