McIntosh-type dessert apple, but firmer and a better keeper and shipper. Pure white flesh is crisp, juicy, highly aromatic, fine flavored. Medium-sized, with beautiful dark red skin. Keeps several months. Somewhat lesser tendency to premature drop than McIntosh. Resistant to scab, mildew and fire blight. Winter hardy, precocious, heavy bearing tree. Blooms early. Cross of McIntosh and Newtown Pippin made at Summerland, British Columbia, introduced in 1936.
