Also known as Weeping Limbertwig.

Summer Limbertwig originated in Greensboro, NC, and first came to the publicís attention in 1855. The tree has a true weeping growth habit and produces a very beautiful fruit. The medium-sized apple has pale yellow skin overlaid with attractive pink and red striping with scattered patches of russet. The white flesh is tender, juicy, and aromatic. It is earlier than most Limbertwigs, ripening in August to September
