Malus ‘Northern Spy’ – Heirloom Apple – 7-Gallon


One of the most famous of all American apples, ‘Northern Spy’ originated in East Bloomfield, NY, about 1800. A bronze plaque marks the site of the original tree. An all-purpose variety, ‘Northern Spy’ is well-balanced, crisp and juicy with the ideal apple taste. The large fruit does everything well; it is good fresh eating, makes an excellent pie (be sure to cook it long enough), keeps extremely well in common storage (even if the tender skin bruises), and is popular amongst cider makers. Every year we hear at least a few cooks declare that if the pie “wasn’t made with Spy, it’s not worth eating.”
