Mattamuskeet probably originated near Lake Mattamuskeet in Hyde County, North Carolina. Legend has it that the seed was taken from the gizzard of a wild goose by the Mattamuskeet Indians. The fruit hangs well on the tree and ripens in November. A low-chill apple that can be raised in warmer climates. Fruit is medium-sized and slightly conical or irregular in shape. Skin is greenish-yellow and covered with dull purplish or rusty overtones. Flesh is dull yellow, firm, juicy, and acid when picked, but mellows in storage.

    Was wondering if you might have any Mattamuskeet Apple Trees that may not have been sold. Thanks
