Originated in Indiana, introduced in 1890. Large, round, especially beautiful apple: pale yellow waxy skin blushed with rosy pink. Crisp, tangy, juicy flesh is highly aromatic with a mild, banana-like flavor. Good cider apple. Good keeper. Vigorous, spreading tree bears at young age.
Excellent pollenizer for other apples.
Low chilling requirement, less than 400 hours.
Partly self-fruitful, biggest crops if cross-pollenized (Golden Delicious Apple, Zestar Apple, or the Red Delicious Apple)
USDA Zones 4-9.
