A highly sought after autumn apple, the Cortland’s parentage can be traced back to a cross between a McIntosh and a Ben Davis. A larger than average apple with a globular shape, the Cortland has reddish-orange vertical stripes over a pale yellow background. The crisp white flesh has a mild, sweet, crisp texture and resists browning. The Cortland is the perfect apple to for salads or fresh eating. It’s also fantastic as a baked apple, and even better as applesauce!
