Wealthy Apples have pale, yellowish-green skin with bright red flushes.
Inside, the apple’s flesh is coarse and soft, and very fragrant.
In season, it is good as a fresh-eating apple. It makes good juice; some even like to use it for cider.
Many people swear by it for apple pies. Good for cooking over all.
Wealthy Apples freeze well in baked goods.
Found in 1860 as a seedling that grew from a Cherry Crab Apple seed in Excelsior, Minnesota. Introduced 1893. It became very popular in the Southern States because there the tree’s apples ripen as early as August.
