Westfield’s Seek-No-Further Apples

(Last Updated On: November 3, 2011)

I have come across a lot of apples with interesting names. But one of the most interesting has to be the Westfield’s Seek-No-Further apple. I guess if you were seeking out a great apple you do not have to seek any further. This apple originated in Westfield, Massachusetts around 1796, when our country was very young. This apple is a mid-season apple ripening in mid to late September. It stores very well. It enjoyed some popularity in New York during the 1900s, but can be difficult to find today. I found this apple at the Produce Station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Unfortunately for me, there was only one apple left, and it was a sample apple. So I only got a small taste of this one, but enough so to give you my thoughts.

My Experience with this Apple (Rating Scale 1-10)
Crispiness: 7
Tartness : 5
Apple Flavor: 8
Sweetness: 7
Juiciness: 6

Overall Feeling: Too bad I only got one slice. It is a flavorful, delicious apple. It had notes of citrus. It is a sweet apple balanced with the right amount of tartness. A great choice for an out of hand eating apple.
