Wisconsin, 1875. An old variety, hardy and long lived. Best known for its large size - up to 5" diameter fruit. Color is pale yellow to green with carmine-red blushes and stripes. Primarily used as a cooking apple.
This large, American native is spectacular in spring, with creamy white flower panicles that are 8-14" long and loaded with fragrant pea-like flowers. Following the flowers, 4" light brown seed pods form in autumn. As the tree matures, the bark turns gray, similar to a beech. Yellowwood is named after the yellow color of the heartwood. A beautiful specimen tree that grows especially well in high pH soils, is also tolerant of acid soils.
('State Fair' x MN selection) University of MN, 1998. A wonderful new apple cultivar from the the University of MN. At last, an early apple that is crisp and juicy! Best known for its excellent sweet tart flavor. Has a much longer storage life than other early apples. Excellent for fresh eating and cooking. Ripens in late August in MN.
