    A very good apple to eat out of hand. We tasted this variety at the Arbor Day Farm Preservation Orchard in Nebraska City, NE. They were picked early (late July) and were totally green. The guide said they are sweeter and more crisp eaten early and more of a pie apple when picked later. We saved our seeds and hope to plant.
