Apples :: Haralson

Late Season • Tart • Heirloom

Haralson apples.
Late September to Early October.

A complex tart flavor and firm texture. This distinctive apple is crisp and juicy, with characteristics that make it great for fresh eating, cooking, cider and storage. It is said to make a great-tasting and perfect-textured pie. 

Developed by the University of Minnesota, 1922 - a Minnesota heirloom.

Offspring: Honeygold, Honeycrisp.

Parentage: Malinda x Wealthy.

Keeps 4-5 months in storage, while retaining good flavor.

For years Haralson was the number one apple in Minnesota. The variety tends towards biennial bearing (altering between high and low yielding years).
