A large to very large yellow apple with a red blush, Shannon is another heirloom from the Cane Hill, AR, area, ca. 1840. We haven’t fruited it yet so I can’t vouch for its rot resistance, but it seems moderately resistant to cedar rust (I see some rust lesions on leaves but not severe and tree seems unaffected) which is really something for a yellow apple, especially these last couple of years.
It begins ripening in September, but keeps in storage well into December. Available on either semi-dwarf (MM.111) or standard rootstock.
