Wickson Crabapple – California, USA 1944

Albert Etter introduction. Humboldt County, CA, 1944. Albert Etter named this apple after E.J. Wickson, distinguished California pomologist, who was his friend and mentor. Perfect cider apple: spicy, with extraordinary sweetness and a pronounced acid tang. Size is that of a large crab apple. Reputed to make wonderful champagne cider and excellent fresh off the tree. One of our favorite eating apples offered. Fruit hangs in garlands.
