Johnson Keeper

Johnson Keeper: This attractive, slightly flattened apple is a good producer and has excellent storing qualities. It may be the same apple as "Johnson's Red Winter", an apple thought to be extinct. Johnson's Red Winter orginiated near Jackson, Mississippi prior to 1885 and grows well in many climates in the South. As its name implies, is keeps well and often was still edible in the spring without modern-day refrigeration. The apple is sweet, juicy, and firm. Ripens in late October or early November.
