The Liberty Apple has a late-harvest season. The skin color is red and the flesh is crisp and juicy with a somewhat tart taste. Good for fresh eating, fried apples, compotes....holds its shape well being cooked. This apple does require two pollination partners that cross-pollinate each other as well as the Liberty. Pollinators include: Jonathan, Yellow Delicious, Cortland, Freedom, Golden Delicious, and Red McIntosh
We offer the Liberty Apple in a 15 gallon container.
This variety needs two pollination partners (of two different varieties) and they need to be able to cross pollinate each other as well as the Liberty.
Liberty Apple was bred to have resistance to apple scab and has low susceptibility to cedar-apple rust, fireblight and powdery mildew.
The first seedling was produced in 1955 from pollinating 'Macoun' x 'Purdue 54-12' for the sake of acquiring Malus floribunda disease resistances.
