Baldwin Apple is a medium to large-sized apple. The skin can be red or red with some yellow, with an occasional small bit of russeting on the bottom. The thick skin and firm flesh enables it to survive shipping and handling well. It is juicy with a sharp, tart taste.
The tree tends to be a biennial producer, overproducing one season, and underproducing the next.
This apple is currently out of favour with producers.
By 1833, it was said to be the most popular apple in Boston (Kendrick's New American Orchardist, Boston, 1833). By 1852, it was even being exported to the East Indies. It was the most important apple in New York State in the last half of the 1800s.
The original tree on the Ball farm died between 1817 and 1832. Today there is a monument at that spot near what is now Chestnut Street in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
