Mother Apple Tree

Apple Type: Fresh Eating | Pie

Mother apple tree is an old Massachusetts apple tree, called by Hedrick “one of the prized apples of all orchards.” Mother apples almost disappeared from cultivation in America in the 20th century although widely grown in English fruit gardens. The Mother apple is a beautiful piece of fruit, good size with thin golden yellow skin covered with deep red marbled and striped with carmine. Fine tender, rich, aromatic flesh. Bunyard, the English pomologist, referred to Mother apple as the “flavor of pear drops.” Great fresh off the tree!
