Apple American Mother

Apple American Mother

An old dessert apple from 19th century Massachusetts which has stood the test of time. Long, slightly conical, medium-sized fruit, flushed deep red; the flesh is yellowish, soft and juicy with a sweet, aromatic taste, best eaten soon after ripening. Apple American Mother is an upright, moderately vigorous tree, and a spur-bearer. Partially self-fertile, but crops much better with a pollination partner. Can be an erratic bearer. Good scab resistance, but susceptible to canker. A good choice for colder, damper parts of the country.
