Praised as the “imperial of keepers”. Tree bears medium-to-large sized fruit with a slightly lopsided appearance. Skin is yellow blushed light red. Flesh is firm, dense, and juicy — great for baking and cider making. Excellent keeper, and flavor improves after a month or so in proper storage. Antique variety, originates from York, Pennsylvania, circa 1830. Cold-hardy. Ripens in late October. Best pollinators: any Golden Delicious or Starkspur® Arkansas Black.

York Imperial Apple
My York is only a year in my orchard so I do not know how good the apples will be, but it is growing very nicely and actually bloomed, but a late frost got all the blooms. However, it is growing well and I am looking forward to many years of apples!
