Melrose – Ohio, USA 1944

This is the official Ohio State apple. Large, fruit with yellowish-green skin streaked dark red with russet spots. The flesh is firm, coarse, sweet, juicy and creamy white. One of the best keepers of all time, whose flavor improves in storage. Very good for pie and baking. This tree is a vigorous, productive, annual bearer that does best in full sun. Displays some resistance to cedar apple rust. Consider Grimes Golden, Liberty and/or White Pearmain for pollination. Triploid
