This is an enormous apple. First discovered in 1875 along the wolf River in Wisconsin- this apple soon became a popular baking apple because you only needed one. The apple is green-ish yellow base color that blushes with vertical red striping. Its flesh is crunchy and somewhat juicy and mildly sweet. It has a subtle flavor that develops well in heat; this apple also retains its structure when baked. 

It is extremely cold hardy- down to Zone 3 and very disease resistant. It has demonstrated resistance to apple scab, powdery mildew, and fire blight. Despite being so big, its actually more of a mid-season apple being ready to harvest around Honeycrisp.
