I’ve seen very little about this apple, besides the description from Cummin’s Nursery. If you grow and/or have tasted this apple, I would love to hear your impressions of the tree and it’s fruit. How does it compare with other disease resistant apples? How long does it typically keep?
Since no one else has responded yet, I’ll share the little I’ve found on this apple.
I believe it was “named” by Michael Phillips, who counts it among his favorite apples: https://www.facebook.com/lostnationorchard/photos/a.1491615654493479.1073741828.1488969531424758/1506276003027444/?type=3&theater.

I’m still curious how it compares with other disease resistant apples and how long it keeps. If you have personal experience with this apple, do tell!
I was pleasantly surprised to read an Adam’s Apples review of this apple today! He seems to like it, but didn’t give it a star rating. Maybe he’ll eat another before giving it a final rating?
