Maiden Blush

IMG_1116-001

Maiden Blush is one of the oldest of the American apples. This variety of apple was brought to notice by Samuel Allinson of Burlington, New Jersey and was described by William Coxe in his manuscript ( A View of the Cultivation of Fruit Trees in America published 1817) as “popular with the Philadelphia market”. The thin yellow skin is tough and smooth which ripens with a crimson blush, hence the name Maiden Blush. A very aromatic apple even uncut and wonderful for the table, it was favored for drying because the flesh remains white.     Visit my website at:   www.hearttohearthcookery.com
