Also known as: Lady Blush, Red Cheek, Maiden Blush, Vestal, Summer Maiden’s Blush, Uchella
Originated in Burlington, New Jersey in 1817 and first named by Samuel Allinson. It is a very lovely apple with a sharp, tangy flavor well suited for cooking. When the fruit is fully ripe, the sharp flavor mellows a bit and makes a very tasty fresh eating apple. It also makes an excellent drying apple as the flesh remains very white when fully dried. Fruit medium to large with smooth, pale waxen yellow skin with a crimson blush. The fine white flesh is crisp, tender, very juicy, and very tart. Ripens July to September depending on location.
