      One of my favorite late apples due to it's tartness, juicy and crunchy. It's a keeper here in W. Washington

      Love those hard to find apples. Crunchy almost chunky, sweet and juicy with just a little tartness. A great dessert apple.

      Crunchy and juicy, but an unremarkable flavor. Slightly tart, but pretty standard apple taste. Nothing too exciting.
