    This is a very good, large, early apple. I no longer grow it, as I don't sell many early apples. My examples, at the former Tainter Hill Farm, in Millbury, MA USA grew well on M26, and didn't "lean", as M26 often does.

    Absolutely delicious, tart apple. i worked at an orchard in Essex County. Ontario, Canada which grew this variety and fell in love with it. Hard to find, though.
