Last fall I moved to a home in southern VT that has a nice little orchard. The previous owner gave me a map of the varieties of fruit. One tree, a Mac/ Cortland mix, looks like it didn't survive the winter. I wonder why and if this variety is susceptible to disease. If I find out more, I'll add another post.

Definately a good cooking apple. Flesh is white. Good all-around apple. Great for cider, too.

If this tree is thinned at fruit-set, the tree will produce well yearly.

Cortland is a cross of Ben Davis and McIntosh which originated at the New York State Agricultural Experimental Station in 1898. A medium-sized apple with smooth yellowish skin mostly covered with dark red and crimson. The fine-grained tender white flesh is very juicy and does not brown rapidly after exposure to air. A reliable and highly productive tree which comes into bearing early. Ripens late September to early October.

A great pie apple.
