Facts About the Northern Spy Apple
The ‘Northern Spy’ apple tree is known for taking as much as a decade to bear fruit unless grafted to a non-standard rootstock. It was discovered around 1800 in East Bloomfield, New York, as surviving sprouts of a seedling that had died and was cultivated with stock brought in from Connecticut. The Wagener apple is believed to be one of its forebears. Producing fairly late in the season (late October and beyond), its characteristic flavor is more tart than most popular varieties, and its flesh is harder/crunchier than most, with a thin skin.
The Northern Spy apple is perfect for use in classic apple preparations such as pies, tarts and cobblers. Use fresh in fruit or green salads or serve alongside honey, cheese and nuts. Like many older varieties of apple the Northern Spy is well known for its cider making qualities.
