Hawley originated around 1750 on the farm of Matthew Hawley of New Canaan, New York. It was raised from seed originally brought from Milford, Connecticut. When grown in the North, it is a high quality apple, but when raised in warmer regions, it can be susceptible to apple scab. Fruit is large and roundish with some ribbing. The thin, smooth, waxy skin is pale green, turning to deep yellow when fully ripe. The skin’s surface has scattered russet dots and flecks. The yellowish white flesh is fine-grained, juicy, and very soft and tender. Ripens in September.
