King Luscious Apples



King Luscious Apples have greenish-yellow skin, flushed with deep red and darker red stripes.

Inside, they have off-white, crisp, juicy, finely-textured flesh with good flavour.

The tree is compact and, blooms late.

The apple is popular in western parts of North Carolina, USA, where it ripens in October.

Cooking Tips

For fresh-eating when full ripe, for cooking when picked earlier. Considered good for apple butter.

Martha Stewart reputedly endorsed them in 2002 for good flavour in apple pies.



Storage Hints

Some sources say it stores well for them; others say it does not.


History Notes

King Luscious Apples were developed from a stray seedling found near Hendersonville, North Carolina around 1928 (some sources say 1935.) Introduced commerically by a William Dalton (who also patented other apples such as Super Gold, and William Dalton's Crackless Stayman. [1])


Presumed to be a cross between Stayman and Wolf River apples.
