A huge apple, probably the largest apple ever grown in the United States. Some apples commonly reach a pound or a pound-and-a-half. Although it is not considered a good fresh-eating apple, it is a fine cooking variety. The fruit is large to very large and roundish in shape although the sides are often unequal. It has greenish-yellow skin with a faint, bronze blush. The greenish-yellow flesh is coarse, moderately crisp and quite acid, becoming mellower when fully ripe.
