Believed to be the oldest apple cultivar from the United States. It dates back to the mid-17th century. It’s a grayish-green, russet apple with a long shelf life. It’s not commonly grown commercially because russet apples have fallen into disfavor with American consumers. It is best suited for cider (and hard cider) production because of its high sugar content, (12-13%) but is often eaten fresh and used in baking.
