Wagener Apple

Malus domestica 'Wagener'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Wagener is a medium to large size, distinctly knobby, irregular five sided flat fruit.  It has thin, glassy smooth skin which is light yellow with pale red striping and mottling.  The flesh is tender, crisp, firm, fine grained and has a subacid aromatic flavor that resembles Northern Spy.  It is a great sauce and cider variety.  The tree is smallish, hardy, early and prolific bearing.  It keeps for long periods.  Ripens in late season, mid-late October.

Alternate Name:  Wagner

Wagener was discovered near Penn Yan, New York in 1791.  It may be a possible parent of Northern Spy.  In Grandpa's day a few Wagener were still commercially grown in Michigan, but it no longer is a commercial variety since they stopped packing and shipping apples via ship in barrels.
