- 18 Jul 2021 Tom DavidsonUT, United StatesI am disappointed in myself that I have not planted this tree. A local grower that has a thriving seasonal fruit stand does though. It is certainly not their most sought after apple, which seems a shame, it eats well fresh, stores at least as well as Jonathan (not great but good),cooks up nice and judging by the 7 gallons of cider we made last fall it drinks nicely too. It ferments pale and clear but the flavor is robust. The ph was a bit higher than I’d like but here in the heat of the Intermountain West lots of apples are. I don’t have anything to offer about the tree but the grower has plenty every year so it must be pretty good.
