Spartan Apple Tree

Out of stock

Highly aromatic, crisp, juicy, fine flavored, and early maturing. Spartan Apple is a McIntosh-type dessert apple, but firmer. It also is a better keeper and tends to ship better. The apple has pure white flesh and is medium sized with beautiful dark red skin. It does harvest early like the Red Delicious. It keeps several months and has a lesser tendency to premature drop like the McIntosh. The estimated chilling time is 800-1000 hours. It is resistant to scab, mildew and fireblight.

Spartan is a heavy bearing tree, winter hardy and precocious. It is self-fruitful, but a larger crop is produced if cross-pollinated by Lodi, Wealthy, or Liberty.
