One of the greatest American russets, with aromatic, sugary, fine grainy flesh. Originated in the 1700's and spread across the colonies and subsequent states. Prized for eating, cooking, fermented cidermaking, long-keeping, also for export back to the Old World. The fruits of this cultivar are yellow gold with an occasional orange flush and lot of russeting. Its flesh is fine texture, juicy and crisp, on the sweeter side. Keeps shape in cooking. Aromatic, sugary, grainy, a colonial American apple variety so good it was exported profitably back to England from the new States! Still seen on old, old farmstead trees. Known to be the original champagne apple.
