      This is a fantasitc apple. Fresh or cooked it has an excellent flavour and a great balance of sweet/tart.

      We went to and orchard in Connecticut and picked my favorite Macintosh and decided to try Creston. They are delicious! I have a new favorite!

      This apple is a juicy sweet yellow-fleshed thin skinned apple. The apple is an attractive apple with red-orange stripes over a yellow background. The smaller apples have a tendancy to get waxy but the larger ones do not become waxy. They keep for 5 months in cold storage. We rate this apple a 5 out of 5.
