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!
