This classic English apple was an accidental discovery, and a delicious one at that. This antique variety originated in England around 1825. The skin of this apple is yellow with overtones of orange-red. Apples are ready for picking in mid-to-late September. This cold-hardy tree will provide plenty of apples for fresh eating, pies, or cider. Be sure to get a pollinator buddy.
