      Katy, ND, USA We've had this tree for almost 50 years. It bears more than enough fruit every year. The kids love the size of the tart apples and we love that there is no waste. The apples are great to eat raw or to make into sauce, jelly, cider, and vinegar.

      We came upon a small orchard in East Burke, Vermont that had a loaded tree of these this fall. We picked a bunch and then enjoyed them immensely. It is a delightful little apple - my 5 and 3 year old loved them and they are the perfect size for kids!

      Brought from a farmer's market. Almost comically small, but crisp, juicy, and very, very tart and sweet.
