A Tolman Sweet Apple ready to be picked at McDougal Orchards

About the Tolman Sweet apple

Tolman was one of the first named varieties grown in Maine and is considered one of America’s oldest varieties. No one knows when and where it originated, but some think it may have been a cross between Sweet Greening and a Russet that was found growing in Dorchester, MA well before 1700. For many years it was considered the best winter sweet apple and was said to “stand any degree of cold.” This is a fine cooking apple, makes good jelly, an excellent apple for baking, stewing and making cider.
