Description

The rediscovery of this apple is told hereThe originator of the Colorado Orange apple, Jesse Frasier of Fremont County Colorado, described it over 100 years ago, “It is the longest keeper I know and of excellent quality.” Historically described as large, round, oblate, slightly ridged at the calyx, stalk medium length, basin shallow; Yellowish-orange color with blush where exposed to the sun; flesh light yellow, exceedingly firm, yet very crisp; a rich, high aromatic, sub-acid flavor, most exceedingly juicy; in fact, in flavor and quality it is distinct and peculiar to itself, differing widely in both these characteristics from any other known apple. It is palatable in December and improves from then on to July.
