Developed in 1936, this apple is very cold hardy and an excellent choice for some of our coldest areas in the state. The fruit delivers an intensely sweet and tangy taste that ripens in late September. Crisp but firm texture and juicy. The fruit develops a maroon red over yellow gold skin. Parent to ‘Keepsake’ and ‘Sweet Sixteen’ apple varieties and grandparent to ‘Honeycrisp’ apple. Needs another (different) apple for pollination. An excellent choice for making cider but can be used in pies and for eating out of hand.
