Ripening Period: Mid to late August

Flavor/texture: Compared to an Granny Smith but this tangy variety has superior flavor and taste.  It is firm and crunchy.

Uses:  Fresh Eating, Salads, Sauce

Orchard Notes:  This apple is a disease resistant Cox Orange Pippin cross.  It is a great fresh eating apple but it only stores for about five weeks.
