Also known as: Parmar, Yellow Flat
An apple of Virginia origin arising sometime in the 18th century, but never very well known or widely distributed. It is quite an attractive yellow apple popular for making a thick, dark yellow applesauce. It was also very popular for making apple brandy. It was said that if a grower had several Parmer trees in his yard, the neighbors knew he was most certainly making illegal brandy! Fruit is small to medium, conical-shaped, with deep yellow skin and irregular patches of russet all over. The dark yellow flesh is fine-grained, crisp, and subacid in flavor. Ripens July to August.
