Cortland Apple Tree
The Cortland apple tree (Malus Cortland) was developed in 1898 at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. It's a cross between a McIntosh and a Ben Davis.
The apples are red when ripe (in Sept or Oct). Red on a yellow background. They don't brown quickly when cut which makes them a great apple for salads.
