The original tree was discovered before 1770 near the hog pen of Deacon Allen of Holden, Massachusetts. In 1825 it was taken to western New York where it became known as Fall Orange. Medium to large, roundish conical occasionally irregular in shape. Pale green to yellowish skin with a pinkish blush. The aromatic white flesh is tender, crisp and juicy. Ripens in September and is a fairly good keeper.
