A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

James Grieves
Origin: Scotland 1890 Ripens: Sept Zone: 3 - 6
Medium to large, conical fruit. Size medium, round conical slightly ribbed shape. Almost solid crimson over yellow. Savoury, juicy yellowish flesh. Crisp yet melting. Strong acidity which can be overpowering early in its season. Acidity mellows and flesh becomes soft and marrowy, yet flavor does not fade. Cooks well, keeps shape, remains a valued garden variety. Excellent flavor. Tree moderately vigorous, hardy and spreading. Excellent cropper. Fruits bruise easily and can drop prematurely.
Jefferis
Origin: Pennsylvania 1830 Ripens: Sept Zone: 3 - 6
Thin skinned, light red fruit with darker red stripes. Juicy, crisp yet tender and melting yellow flesh. Rich pear like flavor. Hardy tree bears heavy crop every year. Scab and mildew resistant.
Jersey Sweet
Origin: unknown Ripens: September Zone: 3 - 7
A medium size, flat shaped, dark red apple with green/yellow striping. Flesh is very rich, sweet, crisp, and juicy. It is good for cider. Usually bears biennially but sometimes annual. Prone to scab. Not a good keeper.
Jewett Red (Nodhead)
Origin: New Hampshire - 1800's Ripens: Late October Zone: 4 - 7
Uses: Baking, Eating, Pies, Salads, Sauce
A crimson apple with red stripes and yellow specks. A fine-textured, yellow fleshed dessert apple. This flesh is tender, juicy, and fragrant with a nut-like flavor.
Jims Delicious
Origin: Oconto Count, Wisconsin Ripens: Late September Zone: 4 - 7
Uses: Eating, Pies, Sauce
Found growing in Oconto County, WI. It has all the characteristics of early Delicious types. Better flavor, except it ripens earlier and is more cold hardy for Northern climates.
Jonafree
Origin: Ripens: September Zone: 4 - 8
An improved version of Jonathan. A medium sized red apple with crisp, juicy yellow flesh. Much more disease resistant than Jonathan.
Jonamac
Origin: New York - 1972 Ripens: September - Oct Zone: 3 - 6
Medium size, firm fruit with 90% dark red color over greenish background. Flesh firm, crisp, high quality with flavor similar to McIntosh.
Jonathan
Origin: New York prior to 1826 Ripens: Oct Zone: 3 - 6
Moderate grower, bears young. Fruit medium, highly colored in sunny climates, striped red in cooler climates. Skin thin and tough; flesh fine, juicy. Flavor sprightly subacid. One of the best dessert and pie apples. Ours is the original, not the redder hybrid.
Jonwin
Origin: Ripens: September Zone: 4 - 8
Uses: Baking, Eating, Pies
A large red apple with a crisp, flavorful flesh. An improved Jonathan.
July Red
Origin: New Jersey 1962 Ripens: July Zone: 3 - 6
Very attractive, large, red fruit. Strongly scented with vinous or loganberry flavor; sweet, soft, juicy, white flesh. Tree moderately vigorous.
July Tart
Origin: Cumberland, Kentucky Ripens: July Zone: 3 - 6
The apple is described as a "summer Granny Smith type"and is both a good eating and cooking apple. Fruit is medium or smaller, conical-shaped, with light-green skin which ripens to pale yellow. The white flesh is firm, fine-flavored, briskly tart, and retains its color well when cut.
