This bare root offering comes on semi-dwarf rootstock. A remarkable low chilling selection originally from Israel, this variety is well suited for southern California and low desert areas. This large apple has light greenish-yellow skin with a slight red blush. Bite into this apple and you'll find a sweet, crisp, though slightly tart, creamy white flesh. This is a great apple for all your needs - use in salads, pies, apple sauce, or simply eat fresh. This early bearing apple stores well. Though self-fertile, a pollinizer such as Dorsett Golden is recommended for better production.
Ripens late June. Requires 200-300 hours chilling below 45 °F.
Cold hardy to USDA Zone 4.
Sold as bare root with 1/2 inch caliper.
