This is the oldest American apple variety. Some folks say the flavor is similar to guava and the texture like a coconut. It has a very high sugar content, though you may not notice it due to the other complex flavors. Cider made from this apple is like nectar, it is so thick and sweet. A medium size apple with russeted skin, it is known as a leather-coat apple.

This apple makes a wonderful culinary apple for pies, tarts, and sauces as well as a sprightly flavored eating apple. Good too when pressed as a single variety sweet cider.
