Introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1978, this is a dependable variety for the north. This large red striped fruit has a unique, pleasing, faintly nutty flavor which makes it an excellent apple for fresh eating. It has aromatic, moderately acid, firm, crisp, cream-coloured flesh with high sugar content so it also ranks highly as a pie and sauce apple. Resistant to scab and fire blight.
