Cortland Apple


  • Developed in Geneva at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in 1898 and released in 1915, this self-fertile cross between McIntosh and Ben Davis apple is a favorite of cooks and orchardists alike. The Cortland is sweet and lightly tart at peak ripeness. Its brilliant red color is sometimes accompanied by light yellow streaks and green specks, a deep contrast compared to the fruits stark white, tender flesh. Amazingly, the flesh retains its white after slicing.
