Jonathan Apple (stepover)
Thought to be a seedling of Esopus Spitzenberg, originated on the farm of Philip Rick, Woodstock, Ulster County, New York and first described by Judge J. Buel in 1826 and named by him after Jonathan Hasbrouck. Fruits are soft, fine-textured with fairly juicy flesh and a sweet, pleasant flavour. Widely grown in the warmer apple-producing regions of the world.
