(Keepsake x unnamed seedling) University of MN, 1991. An exciting apple that is exceptionally crisp and juicy. Flavor is sweet but well-balanced. Excellent storage life, up to 7 months. Has been rated equal to or higher in overall quality than Haralson, Honeygold or Keepsake in winter storage trials. Ripens in late September in MN and stores like a late season variety.
