William James Breakey b. 11 Feb 1895, Lansing, Ontario, Canada introduced the Breakey Apple at Morden, Manitoba in 1935, its pedigree is described as (Morden Research Station to author, 15 Nov 1985): The Breakey Apple produces a ree that is upright, vigorous, hardy and productive, with extra large flowers producing an ornamental plant in spring. Fruit is medium in size, about 5 - 6.5 cm, round in shape, striped bridght red over yellowish-green, flesh whitish, fine texture,d, very juicy, mild, smooth textured, mildly sprightly and spicy -- A good dessert fruit from early September into December. It is excellent for eating out of hand and good for cooking, and is recommended for all Prairie Provinces. I have taken this info from the Breakey Collection, The Breakey Apple. Thanks for you interest.
