A Northern Spy Apple ready to be picked at McDougal Orchards

About the Northern Spy apple

Northern Spy was discovered around 1800 in New York at the seedling orchard of Herman Chapin from seed brought from Salisbury, CT. Introduced in 1840, this apple was already listed as new variety of promise by the American Pomological Society in 1852. In our opinion, Northern Spies make THE BEST apple pie, period. It also keeps well without shriveling and holds its flavor to the last. As with some of our other heirloom varieties, our Northern Spy trees are extremely biennial, only producing a crop every other year.
