Early Fall Keeper.( Bernie Nikolai 1992) "Valentine" is a huge yellow apple with a red blush, sweet and crisp. It has proven hardy in tests in Saskatchewan and was to be sold commercially by one nursery there in 1991 for the first time. It keeps until St. Valentine’s Day, hence the name. Its apples are huge, yet very good for fresh eating. Ripening date is September 15-22 in Edmonton.
