All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Mountain Boomer apple

A huge round apple, some specimens being larger than a saucer. It is a pale yellow with an occasional blush where exposed to the sun. Flavor and texture are exceptional, considering the size of the fruit.

    I grew up with the Mountain Boomer apple variety in Southwest Virginia. From my great grandmother down to myself, we have made the most delicious apple butter from these apples. The flavor is superb and they are perfect for cooking. They make excellent apple butter, apple sauce, and cooked apples. I highly recommend them!
