We can usually tell if someone grew up in or near Minnesota because they're on the lookout for the Haralson apple.
Approximate Ripening Date: September 1st
Flavor: Hard and crisp apple with a complex tart flavor. If you like Granny Smith I always recommend giving the Haralson a try.
Baking: The Haralson keeps its shape when baked. It's especially good in pies.
History: Malinda x Wealthy cross. Released by the University of Minnesota in 1922.
