Description

A must-have for northern gardens!

The Northern Spy Apple Tree blooms late to avoid late spring frost zaps. The large apples have green thin-skin, striped scarlet red where not shaded. The fruit is exceptionally juicy, with a crisp-tender texture. One of the best apples ever to grace a pie, yet delightful when eaten fresh.

In proper storage, fruit can keep up to 5 months. Northern Spy originates from East Bloomfield, New York in the early 1800s. This cold-hardy apple tree ripens in October.

Survival Guaranteed!
