A historic cultivar whose name has been forgotten to time. Currently does not match to any known cultivar in the DNA dataset. However, several old trees remain in the historic Welty and Baumgartner orchards in Weber Canyon, Mancos, Colorado as well as the greater southwest region where they have resisted pest, disease, and drought for over 100 years.

A yellow apple that blushes and stripes a pinkish red. Juicy, sweet to subacid flesh. Ripens in October. A spur type apple making it a prolific bearer with extra showy blossoms in the spring.

DNA shows that this apple is the parent of Boy’s Delight located in the Tasmania Grove Collection and a parent of “unnamed 9” in Muranty et al. 2020.

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.
