Grafted Apples

Winthrop Greening

fresh eating

Late summer-fall apple that was popular throughout central Maine as late as 1920; now all but unknown. Flat-oblate fruit measures 3-1/4 “ across. Light green skin is washed with red-orange and small greenish dots and ribs of russeting, usually with a patch of russet radiating from the stem. Interesting sweet flavor. Crunchy flesh with medium-low acidity. Hardy to Zone 4. Originated on the Ichabod Howe farm, Winthrop, Maine before 1800.
