PROCESSING  VARIETIES

TWENTY OUNCE PIPPIN | BEN DAVIS | NITTANY | YORK IMPERIAL

TWENTY OUNCE PIPPIN  A classic processing variety, ripening early in the season.  Very large fruit -- greenish, not attractive.  Productive.  Fire blight susceptible. 
 

BEN DAVIS   Another old processor -- there were a million Ben Davis trees in Dad's area back in the hills of Southern Illinois 60 years ago!!  Very hard.  Quite dry -- worthless for cider.  Makes a brilliant yellow sauce.Traditional base for apple butter. Susceptible to apple blotch.   
 

GRANNY SMITH  Australia's famous green apple.  An excellent processor.  Tree is somewhat compact. 

NITTANY   A daughter of York Imperial -- much like her mother, but better is about every respect.  Nittany is slightly larger, not quite so lop-sided, a little less sensitive to fire blight, slower browning, better keeper.    Much less prone to internal corking, the major problem with York.  An excellent processor, comparable to York, and I think a really good eating apple.    

NY 674  Of particular value because it just doesn't brown when peeled.  NY 674 slices remain firm and crisp when processed.
