"Early Fall. Golf-ball–sized fruit with truly excellent fresh-eating qualities. Yellow and bronze-red skin with some russeting. Firm crisp juicy fine-grained very sweet yellowish flesh. Stores about a month. Medium-sized productive tree bears annually. Disease resistant. Blooms midseason. Z3-5"



2021 - little growth but alive. All of tree thin and seems stressed. Possibly too many grafts.


2019 - 6/5 has buds, nipped off. Moderate growth. When larger and healthier cut scions to graft nearby.


2018 - Very thin scion from Mark, southern Wisconsin (GF member). Fit OK on small whippy west/north branch of medium mature crab north of garden/east of grapes. Not a lot of growth but 3 live buds had leaves. (one other graft, Trailman, also from Mark, grew but 2 other Chestnuts from ARS-NPGS didn’t).



Online Notes: Recommended by many ... Sub-acid, high sugar, delicate texture and fine aroma with characteristic russet (nutmeg or cinnamon) flavor. Low vigor, spreading tree. Reliable cropping, long-stemmed fruit hangs well. APFG - very hardy, late ripen, desert/cooking, +8. (purvis) Tree size is small, fruit about 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 inches, flavor sweet. (smsmith MN) ripens mid-late Sept. (jesse z5), harvest early Sept. Excellent cider.
