These apples are literally JUMBO just like their name indicates.
Approximate Ripening Date: September 16th
Flavor: This monstrous apple has a tart-sweet, juicy bite. It has one of the best flavors for a large apple but it can be a commitment to eat a single one as these apples can weigh up to 2 1/2 pounds.
Baking: The Jumbo cooks down so if you like a tender pie that requires minimal peeling - this apples is for you!
History: Developed in early 1970s by Daniel A Hanners in Hood River, Oregon.
