This is a very good desert apple. It has a lovely sweet slightly acidic taste. For us it is a mid-season apple (ripe in March). My tree is very vigorous and provides large crops of apples with very little attention. It is very disease resistant, and easy to grow.

This is a very good early apple suitable for desert. It does not keep long(4 weeks) and harvest over about 2 weeks. It hangs very well on the tree. Taste wise it has real apple taste and is slightly acidic and is very pleasing on those hot summer days. It is very grower friendly. It is a very beautiful apple and well shaped.
