Highly rated for flavor, keeping quality and disease resistance. It ripens in early August and is one of the best of the early apples. The medium-sized, red fruit has a sweet, rich, spicy flavor. The tree is very productive with strong, well-angled branches. Immune to apple scab and resistant to mildew, cedar rust and fireblight, it's also an early season bloomer with unusually long-lasting blossoms.
