Van Hoy No Core
Also known as: Vanhoy, Van Hay’s No Core, Van Hoy’s No Core
A fine winter apple of North Carolina origin distinguished by its very small core which contains few, if any, seeds. Calhoun says that some growers believe Van Hoy No Core may be identical to York Imperial which itself has a very small core. Fruit is large in size and slightly conical in shape. The thick, smooth greenish-yellow skin is overlaid with dull red and dark red stripes and is covered with distinctive yellow dots. The crisp, firm yellow flesh is coarse, juicy, and flavorful. Ripens in December and is a very fine keeper.
