Heirloom. A favorite American cooking apple since Colonial times. Medium-large fruit has green skin and an occasional orange blush. The firm, juicy greenish-yellow flesh has a distinctly tart, refreshing, pleasantly acid flavor. Superb pie apple and delicious for fresh eating if tree-ripened. Matures in mid-season and stores well. Zones 4-10.

Also known as: Burlington, Ganges, Green Winter Pippin.

This historic old American apple originated about 1650 at Greens End, Newport, Rhode Island. At the end of the 19th century, it was one of New Yorks most important commercial varieties, surpassed only by Baldwin. It is a vigorous and long-lived tree but does well in the South only at higher altitudes. It is an excellent winter keeper and one of the best cooking apples available. It is a very fine substitute for the more commonly known Granny Smith. The fruit is large, uniformly round in shape and flattened on the ends. The dark, waxy green skin turns a greenish-yellow when fully ripe. The fine-grained yellow flesh is tender, crisp, juicy and quite tart in flavor. Ripens September to October and keeps until February or longer.
