      Grew this variety when we lived in SW OH. My favorite applesauce variety because of its aromatic flavor and noticeable vanilla note. Cooks down well. Not the best variety for fresh eating, but the first OK eating apple from our orchard.

      Very tasty early apple but hard to grow in southern Wisconsin. Some years it was good and others not able to harvest as the flesh would be rotten around the core in hot summers.
