Grandfather had one tree on his homestead. They are a mealy apple that is tart with just a hint of sweet. They bruise very easily, and crack very easily, and they don't keep but just a few days after harvest. They are, in my opinion, not very good for eating out of hand. However, their real value comes from the OUTSTANDING apple butter that can be made from them. They also make a deliciously sweet tart fried apple if you don't mind them a little on the mushy side.

Makes the absolute best applesauce, and old fashioned fried apples! Have been hunting for this old tree for years! This is why I shopped stark.

My grandmother has 2 of these trees in her yard and I grew up eating these in applebutter, applesauce, pies, and jellies. I know first hand that they freeze well, cook well, and have a great taste. I knew that as soon as I had the property I wanted one of these trees! Finding someone who still sold them was difficult, though--I'm very pleased with Stark brother's selection and price!
