Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Farmerdill On Dec 13, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

There are two positives about this apple. It is early, In my childhood it was the first apple to ripen and it is a decent cooking apple. Other summer apples were larger, and had more flavor but you had to wait a couple of more weeks for them. It was very popular on farms in Virginia for its earliness. If I could only have tree of summer apples this would not be it, but with a small orchard it would be included.

Also known as: Yellow June, Yellow Harvest, Yellow Juneating.

Early Harvest is believed to have originated in the 1700's in Long Island, New York. It ripens over an extended period, grows well in all types of soil, and is prized for its great eating and cooking qualities. The fruit is medium in size with smooth, pale yellow skin. The tender white flesh is crisp and juicy with a brisk, tangy flavor. Ripens June to July in most areas.
