Northwest Greening Apple
N.W. Greening is a Wisconsin Native! Jasen Hatch of Iola, WI crossed a Golden Russet with an Alexander in 1849- the seedlings of the new apple were moved to Aurorasville, WI. Under the care of E.W. Daniels who cultivated the newly grown apples and made them commercially available in 1872.
The apple, as the name suggests, is green. It is also quite large reaching to almost softball sized. The skin turn slightly yellow and even a bit of red blush toward the end of the season as the apple ripens. Its flesh is yellow, coarse-grained, firm and crisp. It is juicy, slightly sweet, and tart. Most people eat the apple off the tree or use it in pies. The flavor reaches its peak about 2 weeks in storage and the apple should be used within a couple months. Lastly, it is moderately resistant to fireblight.
