Northwest Greening Apple
Malus domestica 'Northwest Greening'
- Hardiness Zone & More
Northwest Greening is an old heritage variety that Grandpa grew up with. It was a popular old winter variety that could sometimes produce exceptionally large apples almost 5" across. The fruit is a pale green, that turns yellow when fully mature. It has a waxy, smooth handsome finish. It is well known as a good keeper into the winter. It is a good all purpose sauce, cooking and pie apple with a mild, sub-acid flavor, but isn't a great fresh eating apple. It ripens mid-late in the fall.
Great-Grandma liked Northwest Greening because it would last long into the winter. She always had good apples to make pies and sauce out of. Greening was discovered in Wisconsin and introduced in 1872.
