Mcintosh x Ben Davis. Widely grown, all-purpose, late Mcintosh type; one of the standards. Larger fruit with dark red skin underlaid with stripes. Crisp, pure white flesh resists browning when cut. Tart, tangy flavor. Dessert quality. Excellent for eating, cooking and cider. Vigorous, long-lived tree is annually productive and starts bearing early. Excellent pollinizer. Ripens 2-3 weeks before Mcintosh; does not drop as readily. Ripens from mid-September to early October depending on location. Hardy to –40 degrees F in zones 4-8. Developed in 1898.
