New York 75414-1 Apples

(Last Updated On: November 8, 2011)

New York 75414-1 sounds more like a taxi cab id than an apple. Yet I found an apple at a store with that exact name. Not the most creative name ever given a piece of fruit. As you imagine this apple was naturally developed in the state of New York (although the ones I bought are Michigan grown). It was developed by the Cornell/Geneva breeding program. The apple has the advantage of being scab-resistant, which is a good thing for the grower as the apple doesn’t need to be sprayed against apple scab.

My Experience with this Apple (Rating Scale 1-10)
Crispiness: 7
Tartness : 4
Apple Flavor: 2
Sweetness: 6
Juiciness: 5

Overall Feeling: One website I read said that this is the kind of apple you either love or hate. Well I was eating the apple the flavor got worse and worse in my mouth until I wanted to spit it out. So don’t count me among the lovers of this apple. I also read someone describing it as chalky and I can agree with that. I think this is the worst apple I have had all season long (besides a Red Delicious I had to try while working at an orchard).

I purchased these apples at Produce Station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They were grown by Eastman’s Antique Apples.
