Aunt Rachel

Aunt Rachel:  This apple is a local variety originating in Chatham County, NC.  Apple expert Lee Calhoun  has helped to spread this little-known apple across North Carolina. The tree is disease resistant, a fast grower, and its limb structure is such that pruning is made much easier.  The tree begins to fruit early, producing excellent apples of good size. The apples are red with darker stripes. The flesh is white, firm, mildly tart, and juicy. It is good for eating and cooking. It ripens over a period of several weeks in late July and early August.
