The Apple: Great storage apple. Once commonly planted in
Colorado, this long keeping winter apple is best for cooking
and storing. Green overlays with reddish purple. This apple
was named for the noted Illinois pomologist, A.M. Lawver.
One source attributes its origin to a native american orchard
in Kansas. Fruit is medium to large with thin, somewhat waxy
bright red skin darkening to purplish at the base. Flesh is
greenish-yellow, hard, breaking, crisp subacid, and aromatic.
Ripens in late October and is an excellent keeper.
Storage: 7-8 months
Location Found: Norwood
Tree: vigorous, spreading
