served in the finest Paris restaurants. Its tender, spicy flesh with the fragrance
of a delicate banana is packed with Vitamin C, exceeding all other eating apples and even

York, first planted by Jonathan Harsbrouck. A Tree-Mendus
original from our beginnings in 1926, old fashioned flavor
harvested from September through October.
Margil: Classic and conical in shape, the Margil's firm yellowish flesh offers
a sugary, luscious aromatic flavor. Cultivated around 1750 and
remembered for its orange-red skin marked with dark red stripes,
the Margil stores well and is excellent for blending in ciders.

sauces and apple butters, this variety's first recorded planting was in the 1800's growing
in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. When carefully harvested in the fall, its flesh is

flesh is pale yellow, firm crisp and tender to taste. Thomas Jefferson's favorite
apple keeps well when properly harvested during early October.
