A cross-section of the geneva crabb apple. Dan Bussey has tracked down varieties dating from Colonial times, the better to guarantee a world way beyond Red Delicious.
Ripens in early September. Best pollinators: any Golden Delicious, Stark Jon-A-Red Jonathan or Starkspur Red Rome Beauty.
Great for organic growers. This dessert-apple tree is disease-resistant to apple scab and powdery mildew. Fruit has a tart, tangy flavor that.
