description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Baldwin'"

At one time, 'Baldwin' was the most cultivated of all apple varieties. Its popularity still holds today because of its fantastic flavor and long storability. The large round fruit has bright red skin with hard, crisp, yellow flesh. It makes a wonderful tasting cider, dessert, or fresh apple. Trees will bear annually when properly pruned with fruit ripening in October. Ripening dates may vary depending on growing area. These semi-dwarfed hybrids will reach a mature height of 10-12 feet. Plant 15-20 feet apart. At least two other varieties are needed for proper pollination. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
