Ripens: Very late in the season (late October or early November)
Recommended Use: Eating/pie baking (store in refrigerator until January before eating—it is a “long-keeper”)
Taste: Hard and crisp, fairly tart (mellows when stored)
This late season apple is fantastic for cooking and desserts. Tart, crisp and firm, the Arkansas Black will store through the winter and will mellow in flavor with age. Keeps until Spring time!
