Long-time favorite pie and sauce apple, also excellent fresh and for making hard cider. Attractive, lemon yellow skin. Pale, creamy yellow flesh is firm, crisp, aromatic and juicy, with a rich flavor. For winter dessert use, the fruit may be picked while still tart, it mellows in storage, reaching peak flavor and acid-sugar balance after a few months. Elongated, cone-shaped, often lop-sided fruits vary in size from small to very large. Mid-September harvest in Central CA, about with Golden Delicious and Jonagold. Vigorous, spreading tree.
