    I grow this variety. Of 24 varieties of leading heritage varieties in my orchard it is immune to Scab and Mildew, produces such heavy crops that it has to be thinned twice per season and still yields fruits of 20 ounces. At two Apple Days it was voted best tasting apple of 12 varieties by women! It is a stunning dual purpose variety whose only fault is that it is the first to be attacked by corvids every year. I love it.
