Occasionally, the apple can lack any balancing tartness, and to some people’s tastes, taste “woody.”
The tree is a reliable bearer, and is hardy down to -50 F (-45 C.)
Sharon Apples were developed in 1906 at the Iowa State Agricultural Experimental Station from a cross between McIntosh and Longfield Yellow apples.
