Holstein: Zone 4-8. Noted for its delicious mixture of sweet and tart flavors, Holstein is suspected of being a seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin released in Germany in 1918. It is a mid season bloomer but a triploid that won't pollenate other apples. Holstein has a vigorous spreading habit. The medium size mottled orange fruit ripens in early October. It is scab resistant and prized for fresh eating and its flavorful juice. Keeps 5 months!
Apple, Cox's Orange Pippin. I've always been intrigued by this variety (mostly because of Roald Dahl) and it's apparently pretty suited to the growing conditions here. Although it needs another nearby variety (ideally Golden Delicious) for pollination...wonder if I could find them in a two-variety graft.
