It is sweet and early but has a poor mouth feel. I would not plant it again. It grows very well on M26, and seems to be desease free in my low spray orchard. The apples, when thinned, are large, attractive, and yellow with an orange blush when ripe. It responds, better than average, to a Seven (TM) thinning spray. IMO, it is of little use, except as a parent in an apple breeding program.

I have 2 trees of this, and am working both over to far superior, (taste, texture) apples - Mantet and William's Pride, (both early apples). This apple is sweet and juicy - period. It is tasteless, mealy, soft, with no real redeeming features.
