Owner's comments

Medium-sized yellow-green apple with an unusual shape. It is somewhat tart when picked and has a good flavor but its best use is probably culinary. It reaches its best flavor when left on the tree as long as possible (late October in western WA) and turning yellow to slightly orange. Then it is also great for fresh eating. Very scab susceptible. I would not recommend growing this variety in Western Washington.
