Semi-dwarf on M-111 rootstock.

Zones: 6-9

Chill hours: 700 - 800

Harvest: October 5 - October 25

Looks: Yellow with red blush.

Personality: Rich, sprightly flavor, moderately sweet with a tangy finish. Excellent fresh or cooked

Facts of note: Favorite in colder regions.Wonderful processing apple because of its rich flavor and the ability to hold its shape when cooked. Favorite late apple in northern California, it was discovered in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the 1890's as a chance seedling. Good keeper even without refrigeration.

Pollination: Self-pollinated.

Apples are generally late blooming. Need full sun, well-drained soil, and moderate fertility. Thin fruit to maximize quality and size. Susceptible to codling moth, apple scab, powdery mildew, and gophers. Generally cross-fertile, which means that the variety is not pollinated by itself, but by a different variety of the same fruit. Three or more varieties are best. Harvest 3rd year.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.

Sierra Beauty

Discovered these apples at Gowan's Orchard on a weekend trip to Mendocino, CA. Great flavor off the tree, and made the BEST apple pie ever!! Now I live in the city in WI and am so sad I cannot find them here!!

Perfect Tree

This tree was absolutely beautiful. It had good roots and the branch placement is wonderful. I potted it in a 30 gal. smart pot and will get it into the ground during the dormant season. It has leafed out and looks great.
