One of the earliest apples to come from the University of Minnesota breeding program having been planted in 1914 and commercially available in 1940. A possible cross of Wealthy x Northwest Greening but with the 'Spy' in its name implies at least one parent or grandparent to be the Northern Spy. It was originally developed as a cold hardy variety though it performs well in warmer climates. 

The apple is medium sized with yellow skin and slightly blushes red when ripe. A gentle curve yields no pronounced features but the apple is very pretty and shiny. It is very sweet with the smallest amount of tartness and its very juicy with a honey flavor. Most people eat this apple off the tree or use in desserts. This apple also stores very well at 4 months. Ships Spring 2023.
