Vigorous, easy-to-grow tree bears crops of medium to large fruit for fresh-eating, baking, and sauces. Fruit features red-orange stripes over pale-yellow skin and a creamy flesh.
Its flesh is firm, aromatic, crisp and juicy and has an intense cream color that gives purees an orange tint. The apples are of medium to large size, with a sub-acid taste, making this apple an excellent choice to eat fresh or use in cooking.
