Wolf River Apple


Wolf River is an American cultivar of domesticated apple, which originates from the shores of the Wolf River of Wisconsin, in the United States of America, known since 1875. The fruit can be used for freash eating, cooking, and applesauce. The tree is exceptionally cold hardy and generally disease resistant to: apple scab, fire blight, and powdery mildew. The fruit usually ripens mid-September to early October. It keeps well in storage. According to Niels Hansen, Danish-American horticulturist,  it is "supposed to be a seedling of the Alexander, which it sometimes resembles, but is more round and less conical, and averages larger, as grown in the West. The Wolf River has largely superseded Alexander in the western states. Tree a strong spreading grower, not an early bearer, but productive in alternate years."
