The Cortland apple is bright red and covered with dark red streaks. Cortland trees are known for their ability to thrive in cold weather. Their crisp white flesh is exceptionally juicy with a sweet tart flavor. It’s a multi-purpose apple, but is especially good for eating and in salads. It was developed in 1898 by Professor S.A. Beach at Cornell University’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. Over the next decade it quickly became one of the more popularly produced apples in the state, garnering a host of medals including the prestigious Wilder medal of the American Pomological Society, the oldest fruit growing organization in the country.
