An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be on the shorter side, may be crooked or with slight damage. These trees will still produce the very same fruit as a first or number 1 will. They may need to be staked and they do need regular watering, fertilizer and protection from weeds and hungry animals. All trees will benefit from pruning.
This rare cultivar is a local favorite in New Brunswick where it was discovered as a chance seedling. Medium-large, deep maroon apples with crunchy, pink veined flesh are aromatic and attractive. Great for fresh eating but even better for drying. In a New Brunswick trial testing the drying characteristics of over a hundred apple varieties, the terrific flavour of Tangowine garnered top place. Hardy and scab resistant, it makes on interesting addition to any orchard.
