Description

A historic cultivar whose name has been forgotten to time. Currently does not match to any known cultivar in the DNA dataset, but results show its parents are Jonathan x Ben Davis. Several old trees remain in the Greenlee, Jacobs, and Stevenson historic orchards in Montezuma County, Colorado where they have resisted pest, disease, and drought for over 100 years. Large, firm, red blushed and striped apples; late ripening, excellent keeper. Good for all purposes, especially good in pies.

This is one of MORP’s endangered Guardian Trees. We encourage you to grow it and add it to Fruit RegisTREE to help with our preservation efforts.
