Spencer apple

Large nearly solid red or red striped over green fruit. Very sweet with crisp juicy flesh. Fine flavor. Core smaller than McIntosh. Excellent eating quality.

    I had a good friend from Western Mass that used to bring me Spencer apples and they are the best tasting apples hands down.

    Spencer tends to be on the softer side, that plus its high degree of sweetness make it a good candidate for apple butter. - Carter Wilkie, Boston

    I am growing Spencer apples in my backyard and had a wonderful yield this year with virtually no care given to this hardy tree

    We went to a wonderful farm stand in central Mass. called Bolton Orchards and got some Spencer apples. They were the sweetest apples we ever tasted! Firm white flesh, excellent flavor.
