Nice apple, but not particular in taste. I have it there in de garden to pollinate other apple trees Vigorous growing tree. Fruits are the best when picked strait from the tree. The apples taste of roses. Cannot let the fruits stay long on the tree when ripe, because of birds. Some say, this apple is quite nice if left on the tree until it has its yellow colour. I might give this a try this year.
