Old fashioned and loved the name and described taste
JADA U on Feb 18, 2017
Had some strawberry apples many years ago. Had a wonderful strawberry aroma and made fabulous applesauce. Was not a great keeper though, so our local supermarket only offered them for a couple of years. I'm hoping that this tree produces the same apples.

Does this apple have small red veins through the fruit? There was a tree in the woods behind where I grew up outside of Binghamton and my dad called it a Strawberry Apple tree.
Wayne C on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Chenango Strawberry Apple is a wonderful antique variety, but it doesn't have small red veins in the fruit - you might be thinking of a William's Pride. The Chenango apple has a mild strawberry flavor along with the apple taste, which is unique and quite delicious.

Heritage fruit
My husband and I are planting a lot of "heritage" trees and perennials around the farm. The Chenango Strawberry is special because it was developed just down the road and it celebrates the history of our region. The sweet tang makes a great sauce and the kids love eating them so it made sense to have our own.

Nice crop after one year
Stark brothers recommended this as a variety of Apple that would prosper in the warm Southern California climate. Now in its second year here, The tree is sporting about 10 curiously shaped apples. I look forward to tasting them.

Chenango Strawberry apple
It is only in its 2nd year, so too early to tell. I impale a bar of Irish Spring soap on a rod to keep deer away. I previously had this tree; it died last year after reaching the age of 40. It is one of my all time favorite apples; an early eating apple with great appearance.

Doing great
Received in good condition. Planted last year and it survived the cold snowy winter. Now it's budding and looking good.

Great Heritage Apple
I grew up in Chenango County and wanted to revive this old classic. The tree came well packaged and healthy. It's budding out this year, despite our horrible May temperatures. Very satisfied!

Survived the Winter
Purchased the Chenago Strawberry Apple last year, and a Cinnamon Spice Apple for a polinator. Both trees have survived their first winter in the ground and have leafed out nicely. I live about 35 miles northwest of Chicago. So far, so good!
