In spite of it's name, this heirloom variety actually originated in Maine and was saved from extinction by John Bunker of Fedco Nursery. Here is how John describes this rare find: 'Beautiful, superb tasting dessert apple. Surprisingly juicy, distinctly tart, full-flavoured, medium-to-large, round conic fruit. Rich buttery-yellow skin overspread with a veil of vibrant red-orange. Very good early season cider.' Canadian Strawberry tops taste test trials on a regular basis. Plant with several other varieties as it is a triploid.
