This variety is extremely disease resistant, and perfect for home growers that do not want to spray. The apple is large and with a red blush covering nearly all of yellow fruit, sweet, crisp and juicy. It is perfect for fresh-eating or for a sweet cider apple. The tree is vigorous, easy to grow, and naturally takes a good shape. Resistant to fireblight and powdery mildew, highly resistant to scab and Cedar Apple Rust. Heavy fruit sets require thinning. Liberty is the backbone of any organic orchard.
