A Esopus Spitzenburg Apple ready to be picked at McDougal Orchards

About the Esopus Spitzenburg apple

This highly respected American apple variety is named after the settlement of Esopus in Ulster County, New York, where it was found towards the end of the 18th century. It was rumored to be Thomas Jefferson’s favorite apple and an inspiration for the Waldorf Salad as it does not brown when cut. It was widely planted in the USA in the 19th century and used for both dessert and culinary purposes, but subsequently fell out of fashion. The apples have an excellent flavor, which improves with storage.
