One of the oldest American apples. Coxe wrote in 1817 that Maiden’s Blush was popular in the Philadelphia markets of his day. Beautiful apple of pale thin skinned, lemon-yellow color with crimson blush. Flesh is white, sprightly, crisp and tender with a sharp, acid flavor that mellows when fully ripe. Tree is an excellent grower, comes into bearing young. Dependable producer, long harvest period, and displays resistance to fireblight.
Uses: Fresh Eating, Cider, & Cooking
