We have 7 different kinds of apple trees. The banana apple has always been our favorite to eat right off the tree in the fall. But the Liberty has taken first place this year! It is wonderfully crisp, sweet & juicy.

This cultivar bears fruit heavily every year and benefits from having fruits thinned for better fruit size and flavor. Self-fruitful. Disease resistant, too.

Neutral Big_Red On Dec 13, 2004, Big_Red from Bethelridge, KY (Zone 6a) wrote:

"Described as the most trouble-free of all apples, Liberty is the result of years of work by fruit breeders to develop an apple that would free growers from the endless rounds of repetitive spraying. Liberty has lived up to expectations. A cross of Macoun and an experimental apple variety, it is a deep red apple with great eating and baking qualities. The fruit is medium to large with rich yellow skin overlaid with dark red stripes and splashes. The pale yellow flesh is crisp, tender, juicy, and quite flavorful. Ripens in October and improves in flavor over a couple of months of storage."
