“A Stayman grower is a benefactor to all mankind!” –Georgia grower, and I concur! A late apple resistant to all major diseases and a great all-purpose apple: fresh eating, cider, keeping, and cooking! It is sweet and tart and with just a touch of tannins, which makes it a near perfect cider apple, all by itself (without blending with other apples). From Kansas around 1875, it has a long history of success in the South. Heavy bearer. Near perfect apple for my tastes, but it is pollen sterile (won’t provide pollination for other apples). Available on standard rootstock ONLY (sold out of semi-dwarf Staymans).
