Owner's comments

This is the first year our tree produced a very bountiful crop. Such seems to be the case this year for apples generally in northeast Ohio. No late Spring frost, adequate moisture and a long, moderate Fall with no really cold weather early on. Th apples are large and firm, with some showing moderate defects in appearance, which has nothing to do with the taste;they are very juicy, crisp and spicy, and seem to improve in flavor after being picked. This is a truly wonderful apple coming form a tree we planted around 1993 or 1994. And the blossoms were magnificent and long lived!
