Chenango Strawberry Apple

Malus domestica 'Chenango Strawberry'

Chenango Strawberry is one of the most beautiful summer apples, with medium to large, conical, shiny, yellowish-whitish, smooth skinned apples.  The skin is almost translucent.  The fruit is firm, juicy and white, but tender and very aromatic.  Pick when the skin stars to turn milky.  It picks over a long period of several weeks, but overripe fruit will get dry and mealy.  Good for eating and sauce.  The tree is very hardy, but very susceptible to fire blight.

Alternate name:  Buckley, Chenango, Early Sugar Loaf, Frank, Jackson, Sherwood's Favorite, Smyrna

Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Many heirloom varieties have some natural resistance to apple scab and other diseases, since they were often discovered and grown well before fruit growers started to use chemicals for disease control.  However, you may still want to be vigilant about fire blight, apple scab, and other fungal diseases and spray when the need arises.  Protect from insect damage like normal.
