Thought to be a seedling from a Spitzenburg when it was discovered on a farm in Woodstock, New York back in the late 1700’s. Ours is the original, not the redder hybrid. Naturally a smaller tree, this variety bears young, annually, and heavily. Fruit medium, highly colored in sunny climates, striped red in cooler climate with fine-textured, juicy, sprightly subacid flavored flesh. One of the best dessert and pie apples. The fruit freezes well and has a long storage life.
