Arkansas Black Apple Tree

Very good after months of storage.

One of the prettiest apples with a deep red color and perfect shape. Excellent for fresh eating or cooking, but best flavor is after a couple of months of storage. Very firm, tart flesh. Great addition to applesauce or cider. Late season maturity; pollinates other varieties that bloom from mid to late season. Zones 6–8.
