This large beautiful apple originating near Boskoop, Holland in about 1856, was first known as 'Schoener von Boskoop'. In Europe, where it is still a popular commercial variety, Boskoop is recognized for it's superior culinary qualities, but in addition to cooking and baking it also works well for cider and fresh eating. The rich, but sprightly flavour has a sharp, clean, lemon tinge that will wake up your taste buds. It will mellow and sweeten during storage and can easily be kept all winter. In recent years it has been discovered that Boskoop has a higher phytonutrient content than most apples. Vigorous, scab resistant tree is very productive, but often takes a little longer to begin bearing. Plant Boskoop with several other varieties as it is a triploid.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
