Nittany Apple

nittany

I picked the last Nittany apple this afternoon. The young tree bore several this year, but I picked the others too soon, as they develop their color before they are ripe (endearing them to commercial growers, who pick them early to ship and store better). But waiting until mid-January to pick it rewarded me with a nice cinnamon-spice flavor to this crisp, juicy apple. I hope I get a bunch next year.
