"Ripens in October Zone: 3-6. Skin pale, yellow, sometimes flushed, russet lines. Small to medium uniform fruit has white, very sweet, hard flesh. Long lived, very hardy tree is early to bear and productive. Peculiar sweet strange flavor. Very low acidity."



2021 - Doing fine, slow but good growth. Overall a bit spindly so loosely staked.


2020 - Strong growth, healthy, 2 1/2'^.


2019 - End of March I noticed last summer's ARS graft on a7 had rough/discolored area. Top bud growing nicely so left it. Today most all of the scion area looks bad, I assume diseased. Original branch and 5" scion growth looked healthy though so I cut off the 5" growth to re-graft. Cut off original scion and back into healthy branch & tossed. 5/27 grafted the good piece onto small a5 rootstock @ ~ 2’ on 1 yr growth. Grew well.


2018 - ARS-NPRS scion - grafted on west side a7 crab.



Online Notes: naturally sweet applesauce. Probably the best late sweet apple. (Fedco)--Fall-Early Winter. ...all-purpose fruit, used for cider, cooking, dessert and even animal fodder. ... Moderately juicy medium-sized greenish fruit, sometimes with a bit of a blush and often marked by a suture line running from stem to stern. Long-lived heavy-bearing vigorous tree. Bloom midseason. Z4-6. The tree is a reliable bearer and a late bloomer.
