Description

A dual-purpose, precocious apple. Fruit stores well and is also suitable for fresh-eating, salads, desserts, and baking. Crisp, fine-grained fruits have a sweet-tart, white flesh — one of the best pie apples. Compact trees bloom early and large-sized fruit ripens late. A Jonathan x Wagener cross. Cold-hardy. Ripens in October. Best pollinators: Stark® BraeStar™, Stark® Lodi or Starkspur® UltraMac™."

One of the best cooking and keeper of all the apples we have grown, keeps in a cool area until April.
DAVID M on Mar 23, 2016
Years ago this was a variety we found at a "pick-your-own" orchard near our home (Rockford, IL). I love the taste and how well it keeps. I've been looking for it in nursery catalogs ever since.
RICHARD G on Mar 15, 2016
Sounds like a good all purpose apple. Again, love the sale price. Will be looking for Wolf River & Lodi to go on sale & make another purchase.

Can Honeycrisp, Haralson, and Jonagold apple trees be used as a pollinator for an Idared apple tree?
Judith C on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well, Jonagold is pollen-sterile, so it cannot pollinate other apple varieties by itself, but all of those apple trees growing together will provide adequate cross-pollination for one another.

for me this is the best pie apple!
We use Idared apples for applesauce and pies. So far my trees are doing very well. Like buying from the Stark Bros. They have a good shipping schedule and great choice.
