The flavour is mild, and the flesh is crisp and juicy.
Good for eating fresh.
The apple was being grown in North America by the 1880s. It was in the collection at Cornell’s Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, NY, at the end of the 1800s. It was mentioned by John Warder in “American Pomology – Apples 1887”. After that, it was forgotten about and disappeared. It was found again in an old New Jersey orchard by Conrad Gemmer of Susquehanna, Pennsylvania in the 1980s. Now being revived by Southmeadow Fruit Gardens in America.
