Apple Tree - Cortland
Grow large sweet apples with a hint of tartness.
The Cortland Apple Tree (Malus 'Cortland') is a cross between a McIntosh and Ben Davis Apple with the best qualities of both. It is one of the very few apple trees that are self pollinating.
Your Cortland Apple Tree will bloom mid season with a dazzling show of pink buds and snowy white blossoms. It’s a beautiful display, and a sign of the delicious apples to follow.
The Cortland Apple Tree fruits annually. Its harvest is heavier than most apples, and the apples are ready to harvest in September and October, just in time for a warm apple pie on a cool, crisp fall day.
The apples from your Cortland Apple Tree are juicy and sweet with a slight hint of tartness at their peak. It is a large brilliant red striped apple with stark white, tender flesh.
Amazingly, the flesh retains its clear white color after slicing making it a wonderful choice for salads and fruit trays. It is also a prized cooking apple, used in delicious breads, pies and sauces.
A favorite of cooks and ideal for first time growers the Cortland Apple Tree will provide your family and friends an abundance of delectable fruit all season long.
