Winter Sweet Paradise
Also known as: Winter Paradise, Grandmother, Wine Sweet, Paradise Winter Sweet, Honey Sweet, Pennsylvania Sweet Paradise, White Robinson, Paradise Sweet(?)
This apple probably originated near Paradise in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and was first mentioned in 1842. It grows well at altitudes of 1200 to 1500 or higher but does not do well in lower altitudes. Very sweet with a pleasant spicy undertone in flavor. Fruit is medium to large with dull green or yellowish skin, sometimes having a slight brownish or purple blush on the sunny side. The white flesh is tender, juicy and sweet and is sometimes said to have pear-like flavor. Ripens in September and is a good keeper.
