      Very resilient to weather extremities, and bears a crispy, delicious fruit despite this. Would recommend to anyone who wishes to grow apples in a very temperate climate.

      Best short season apple. High production , pleasant dark red color and juicy flesh. Best eating out of hand, very soft when baked, best sauce when mixed with very tart apples. Better apple butter than jelly.

      I wanted a good variety for the Dakotas so I planted a Hazen some years ago. Prolific bearer, the weight of the large & many fruit breaks down its own branches. Tree heals over & keeps going, talk about a survivor. Birds leave this one alone unlike my other varieties. However my Hazen apples are just not that tasty.

      This is a very good tasting fruuit. It will keep in a crisper drawer of refrig. well into early spring.
