This tree is currently the most disease-resistant apple on the planet! Dark, polished red skin and intense, sprightly flavor make this medium size, elongated apple a favorite. Trees that were bred in New York for high scab and mildew resistance thrive in the Pacific Northwest and throughout most of the nation. Every year, a large crop ripens on this spreading tree late midseason, in early October in the PNW.
