Malus pumila var. Antonovka (Malus domestica)
Originally created in Russia, this apple tree is incredibly cold hardy and commonly used as a root stock for other apple breeds.
Cross pollination is required with another apple, pear or crabapple tree in order for fruit to be produced. Generally, fruit production does not occur until the tree has reached 5-7 years of age.
Its fruit are yellow/green, low sugar, late fruiting and great for pies and cider.
