A very good to excellent early apple ripening 4 weeks earlier than Red Delicious. Fruits are large to very large, conical in shape with a pinkish red color. Has an exceptionally pleasing aftertaste. This quality can be maintained in storage for at least 10 weeks under refrigeration. Somewhat delinquent in bearing and a tendency toward biannual bearing are its chief faults. Growth habit is moderately vigorous and spreading. One of the easiest to train. Very good to eat fresh, in sauce or pies.
