One of my favorite late apples due to it's tartness, juicy and crunchy. It's a keeper here in W. Washington

Love those hard to find apples. Crunchy almost chunky, sweet and juicy with just a little tartness. A great dessert apple.

Crunchy and juicy, but an unremarkable flavor. Slightly tart, but pretty standard apple taste. Nothing too exciting.

A very good North American eating apple with a "spicy" flavor. Fruit large, with an attractive color. Flesh yellow. Subject to bitter pit.
