It's a small, late season apple with an sweet syrup flavor, somewhat like sugar cane.
Bill and Andrea at Champlain Orchards are committed to ecological practices and are Eco-Apple certified. Due to challenges of our Northeast climate, they use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and minimally spray their apples to manage pests in conjunction with natural methods.
This is an excellent all purpose apple that makes a terrific pie. It is wonderful fresh, cooked or sauced, but does not dry well.
Fresh apples are best stored in their plastic bag in the refrigerator.
