Minnesota #447: one of our families' favourite apples to eat!
A very unique apple that deserves a place in cold climate growing. Minnesota #447 is a very sweet crisp apple that packs a sugarcane punch with hints of molasses. A late season ripener usually pushing into late September. Apples are smaller, averaging 5 to 6 cm (2") in size. Great for fresh eating and it's an excellent keeper which easily stores all winter! Also can be used for cider making and juicing.
