Liberty Apple Tree
The Liberty Apple, Malus 'Liberty', was developed by the New York State Agricultural Station in 1955 for resistance to apple scab.
It is a medium sized apple with a deep dark red stripes over a yellow base. It also has numerous small sunken dots over the surface of the skin.It is oblate to oblate conic, and the size averages 2 3/4 to 3 inches, although it may be smaller on heavily cropping trees.
The flesh is yellowish in color, and the apple is juicy, crisp, and fine. It is primarily a dessert apple. The flavor is subacid and good. It makes an excellent applesauce if the skin is left on.
Plant about a month after the first killing frost in the fall or about a month before the last killing frost in the spring. Select a planting site that has good air, drainage, full sunlight and deep, well drained soil.
