    2 year old on Bud 9 that I transplanted to the farm in 2009 from Drew Zimmerman, our local cider growing expert. This apple is a standout for flavor- very complex, like the Belle de Boskoop it varies year to year. I am writing this in hindsite as it&#39;s been a few years of growing now. The apple has finally attracted the apple maggot and Codling moth is light. Makes excellent cider.
