Mollie’s Delicious

Developed in 1966 at the New York Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, Mollie’s Delicious is just starting to ripen now.  It is a cross between Golden Delicious and Red Gravenstein and is inferior to both, but ripens early in the season and keeps rather well.  The flavor is sweet and juicy but not very acidic or tart, and the flesh is crisp, firm, and very juicy.  It is quite productive and held up well to our heat.  I’m looking forward to more of them and will include them in school orchards, as the kids will enjoy the easy-to-bite-into flesh and mild sweet taste.
