Malus ‘Wolf River’ – Heirloom Apple – 7-Gallon
This famous “old timer” originated as a seedling on the banks of the Wolf River near Fremont, Wisconsin around 1875. The tree is very hardy and productive. Fruit is extremely large, a pound or more (one or two apples will make a pie!), with skin blushed bright red over yellow and creamy-white flesh. Excellent for baking, sauce and drying – it’s quite sweet and doesn’t need much sugar added. ‘Wolf River’ has resistance to scab, mildew, fire blight and cedar-apple rust, making it a great choice for a minimal-spray backyard organic orchard. Ripens mid-September to early October.
