We have been pulling these out of the bottom drawer of the frig, and can't believe how good they are in February!

Great surprise! Almost better than my all time favorite, golden delicious - the kind from a local farmer, not the grocery store

Picked and ate my first today at a local farm. Best apple I ever had. Great for everything given it's flesh, texture and taste!

To me this is the best apple to pair with caramel! On a stick, or slice and dip!

Good looking yellow apple with a 0-40% orange-red blush. Flavor is sweet yet mildly subacid, said to be intense. Cream colored flesh, not prone to browning. Fruit can be stored up to 6 months in cold storage.
