Lubsk Queen Apples are from Russia. They were introduced into America and Canada sometime between 1879 and 1885 by Professor J. L. Budd of Iowa State Agricultural College and Charles Gibb of Quebec. They were looking for Russian apple varieties that would do well through the winters in Quebec and in the US prairies.
They were shown at the Columbia Exposition in 1893.
