Rhode Island Greening Apple Tree

The Rhode Island Greening apple tree, also known as Burlington Greening, Ganges, or Jersey Greening, is a historic American variety from the 1650s, native to New England. It produces large, tart, greenish-yellow fruit that ripens late in the season and requires two diploid pollenizers for full fertility. Despite its susceptibility to diseases like scab, canker, and fireblight, this long-lived tree is highly valued for its firm, chunky texture, making it ideal for baking, cider, and fresh eating for those who enjoy a tart apple.
