Tolman Sweet – Massachusetts, USA Before 1700

Tolman Sweet one of America’s oldest varieties. No one knows when and where it originated, but some think it may have been a cross between Sweet Greening and a Russet that was found growing in Dorchester, MA well before 1700. Highly esteemed for baking, stewing and making cider, this is one of the best late sweet apples. Pale yellow skin with russet lines envelops firm, white, sweet fleshed medium to large apples. Bears reliably almost everywhere and is especially hardy.
