Wolf River apple tree originated on the farm of W.A. Springer in Wolf River, WI in 1875. The Wolf River apples are enormous fruits, often 1 lb. or more, famous for one pie from one fruit. Similar to the Alexander, but a bit larger and rounder. Wolf River apples have pale yellow skin almost covered with pale dull red. Soft, tender, creamy white flesh. Mostly used for baking and pies, but in the right climate on sandy soil it becomes a good dessert apple.
