    Picked up a bag of six in the supermarket yesterday. Very juicy and crisp, slightly sharp. Just right for a summer's day. I can imagine it would be a good juicing or user apple.

    The Horse (Hoss) apple originated in Washington Co Tn in the late 1700s. It was developed by Jacob Hoss.
  • Apple - William's Pride

    I inherited a dozen WP trees when we moved to west-central OR in 2010, and have planted more since then. Pretty undemanding trees in terms of maintenance, and good producers. I find the flavors of this crisp early-season apple very attractive? . I get butterscotch hints along with a pleasant array of varied fruit flavors. This apple is meant for eating fresh; it doesn't keep well, does OK in cider, and isn't particularly suited for cooking. But it excels at its job: early-season fresh eating.
