Grafted Apples

Tompkins County King

bakingciderfresh eatingprocessing

Large to very large fruit. Smooth, yellow skin washed with orangeish red; sometimes striped. Coarse, tender, yellowish flesh. Rich, sub acid, balanced flavor. Excellent for dessert, pies, sauce and cider. Once grown commercially as a drying apple. Tends to water core which creates translucent, very sweet patches in the flesh; shortens storage life, but many find it enhances flavor. Natural semi dwarf tree; precocious and vigorous. Tip bearer. Pollen sterile triploid. Ripens during September. Originated in New Jersey around 1750 and gained its fame in New York State. Introduced in 1804.
