Considered Thomas Jefferson's Favorite - Rated Best Flavor

Firm, crisp, fine grained, with a rich, aromatic, renowned flavor. The Spitzenburg Apple  (Esopus) was one of the favorites of Thomas Jefferson. It is thought of as a dessert apple for connoisseurs.

It is a superb eating apple with a medium to large, with round-conical, orangish fruit with tough skin. The flesh is tinged yellow, firm, aromatic, and complex in flavor; a perfect balance between sharp and sweet. It can also be used for cooking and cider. Its' flavor improves with storage.

The willowy branches grow unevenly, prolifically producing fruit. It is long lived tree. A pollinator is required by mid-season blooming apples, but not by Gravenstein, and it is hardy in Zones 4-8.

Uses: as fresh eating or as a dessert, puree, applesauce, apple butter, baking, and cider.
