Ontario Apples

Ontario are medium to large-sized apples, with green skin covered with red blushes and stripes.

Inside, they have off-white, crisp, finely-textured, juicy flesh, that is aromatic with a brisk, sweet taste.

The fruit ripens in October.

The tree starts bearing when young, and is a good bearer, but it can be biennial. The blossoms are somewhat frost resistant.
