Northern Spy apples are a very late season, large and stout apple with carmine red skin married with streaks of yellow and pale green. Its tender-crisp flesh is creamy yellow and juicy. It imparts a bit of a tartness in its bite, but more of a cider-quality flavor with hints of pear and sweetness.
Northern Spy apples are available in the fall season.
The Northern Spy is a naturally vigorous variety which will produce a relatively large tree, however while it is a hardy grower, it can take longer than most apple varieties to come into bearing. Known for its winter hardiness, Northern Spy apples can be stored up to three months in a cool dry place lasting well into early spring.
Northern Spy apples are rich in dietary fiber, specifically pectin which has been shown to reduce cholesterol and slow glucose metabolism in diabetics. They also contain vitamins A and C, most of which is found in the skin.
The Northern Spy is as versatile as apples come. They can be served raw, baked, roasted, sautéed or slow cooked to a puree. Perfect for use in classic apple preparations such as pies, tarts and cobblers. Use fresh in fruit or green salads or serve alongside honey, cheese and nuts. Like many older varieties of apple the Northern Spy is well known for its cider making qualities.
The Northern Spy apple tree was first planted in the early 1800s by Herman Chaplin in an East Bloomfield, New York orchard using seeds from Salisbury, Connecticut. Though this tree would not live long enough to bear fruit, sprouts taken from the original tree and replanted by Roswell Humphrey would go on to produce the first Northern Spy apples. In 1852 the American Pomological Society listed the Northern Spy as a new variety of promise and a variety worth cultivating. Its popularity soon spread throughout New York as well as to northeast apple growing regions. Today the Northern Spy apple is grown mainly in the northeast United States as well as at a few specialty orchards on the west coast.
