I have Two trees planted before 1895 that are different (but) have been identified as Belmont. one has a blush, one does not; they have a few seeds. the one without the blush appears to get ripe earlier and has more of an acid taste. The one with blush is blander. Which is the Belmont?

Semi-crisp, sweet eating apple off a very productive tree. Seems resistant to apple scab (based on my experience with a single, very old yard tree on Vashon Island in Western Washington, an area prone to apple scab). Cooks down to sauce quickly; tasty in pies but individual slices will cook out.
