My neighbor has this tree and it is wonderful. I've been making pies, applesauce, apple butter from these apples for years. Has never been sprayed, no insect problems of any kind, just good apples. I hope this is the correct one, I've been searching for it as she didn't know what it was. A friend from IA suggested Wealthy

Because it was a tree from my husbands childhood and his mother made pies with these apples and they were delicious, but they were also good as an eating apple:)

Good even when not quite ripe.
We had a Wealthy apple tree on our farm west central MN. As kids we would eat them before they got completely ripe. A nice small size. Besides their good taste, I remember polishing them to a beautiful deep red shine on my jeans. It is no longer there but there is a greening that is over a 100 years old in the orchard. The apple mom liked for pies and sauce was Dutchess.
