Notes

Standard and Dwarf ('MN447' x 'Northern Spy') University of MN, 1978. Medium-sized red striped apple with crisp, juicy texture. Excellent sweet, unusual flavor - like cherry candy. Outstanding dessert apple. Fire blight resistant. Can be slow to come into bearing - better on dwarf rootstock. MNRC. Good success in zone 3b. Ripens Mid-late September.
