  • Apple - Nittany

    Our favorite apple. Mild, almost golden delicious taste with tart edge, always crisp. They keep till February for us -- they just get wrinkled, never mealy. We drive to Adams County, PA, every year to buy a bushel.
  • Apple - Saturn

    Bought an initial 5 on 106 rootstock. Taste is boring,bland but juicy and sweet. I didn't like it but my customers love it, so I top worked 35 red Falstaff with it...and still haven't got enough. Will probably graft/ top work another 25 with it. Although a beautiful looking apple it can suffer with canker, no matter what the catalogues say
  • Apple - Fiesta
