|A bright red, tart, late season apple|
|Botanical (latin) name:||Malus "Haralson"|
The Haralson is a cultivar apple that is medium-sized and has a round-conic shape. It is red in color with large, moderately conspicuous dots. Haralson apples are crisp and juicy, having a tart flavor. They are good for eating, cooking, and are an excellent choice for pies. The skin is medium-tough, and the stem is medium.
The Haralson Apple was introduced by the Minnesota Horticultural Research Centre in 1922 and named after Charles Haralson, superintendent of the U of M fruit breeding program.
Like all high latitude hardy apple trees, the Haralson Apple grows to about 20 feet tall, has white non fragrant blossoms that appear just as the leaves are breaking bud. The dark green leaves that turn orange in the fall.
The Haralson is a late season apple that requires a different
apple variety as a cross pollinator to produce fruit. Since it is
a late season tree, it can only cross with a different variety of
mid or late season apples.
