We have a 3 year old tree in mid-Missouri and got about 30 apples from it this year! Love the flavor- I need to plant more!

We have one tree that is just plain incredible...we had/have a harvest this year that was/is super!! Great size, great taste! Perfect with carmel dip or carmel apples!! With the late season drought, we watered and kept the tree from early drop...was worth it! I like the way they do not turn brown quickly after cutting...nice white coloration that stays!!

I recently harvested a Haralson tree in my backyard. I live in a cold climate with harsh winters that get 20 below zero. I am pleased with the apple crop that was produced from my five year old tree. They also weathered hail storms in June.

Complex flavor. Very cold hardy

Good baking, eating and cider apple. Flesh is crisp, juicy, firm. Mildly tart flavor, not acid. Holds its shape and texture in baking. Retains good flavor in keeping.
