Spigold
Planted this tree in a tough spot, with a neighbors very invasive hedge always encroaching. Have read that Spigold is very vigorous unruly even. This may prove true. But so far it has proven to be just what I needed where it is. 3rd year with no fruit but spurs are forming so perhaps next year. Very healthy goodlooking tree compared with 25+ other apple varieties.
