Cortland apples for sale

It’s hard to believe that we are more than half-way through apple picking season. Don’t fret though, there are still some wonderful apples coming into their peak season; we wanted to share a bit of information on Cortland, Empire & Jonathan Apples.

Cortland Apple

When it comes to being a popular apple, Cortland ranks right up there with the best of them; it is among the top 15 most popular apples in the United States. Cortland apples are a cultivar of apple and were first produced at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York in 1898. Cortland apples were named for the nearby Cortland County, New York, and are one of the most commonly produced apples in the state of New York.

It’s easy to understand why a lot of people could confuse this apple with the McIntosh, because Cortland is actually a cross between a McIntosh apple and a Ben Davis apple. The Cortland apple is bright red, with a crisp white flesh that is incredibly juicy with a sweet-tart flavor.

Like the McIntosh, the Cortland is a soft apple, though not quite as soft as a McIntosh; however unlike the McIntosh, the Cortland apple can be used in many ways, from eating, baking, to cooking.

Additionally, the Cortland apple is extremely slow to brown when it is cut, making it another great apple for recipes that call for fresh apples, (think fruit salads or fruit kabobs)

As with all McIntosh varieties, Cortland is at its best when eaten soon after being picked. The sweet-tart flavor will fade quickly, as will its crispness.

Empire Apple

If you are looking for the quintessential red apple, that is perfect to go in the kid’s lunch boxes, as well as on the teacher’s desk, then the Empire apple is the apple you are looking for, if for no other reason than the fact that this is an apple that doesn’t bruise easily.

The Empire apple made its debut at Cornell University in the 1940’s, but were not introduced to the public until 1966. The parents of the Empire apple are the Red Delicious and the McIntosh, which is where it gets it beautiful red color from. The apple was called Empire to pay homage to the state they were created in.

When it comes to taste, you will find the Empire is a sweet apple with a crisp, crunchy taste, and a bright white flesh. Like the Cortland apple above, the Empire apple is another perennial favorite of apple lovers across the nation.

You can roast, bake, or sauté or even dry an Empire Apple. Additionally, because of their crisp texture, they make a great apple for salads. If you choose to use them in a salad, they will stay white longer if you put them in a bowl of water containing two tablespoons of lemon juice first.

Jonathan Apple

The Jonathan apple is an heirloom apple that used to be extremely popular but lost some of its popularity due to all the newer varieties of apples that began to appear on the scene. However, the good news is that heirloom apples are becoming popular all over again, and the Jonathan apple is once again becoming a fall favorite.

Did you know that the Jonathan apple is actually a parent to many varieties of apples, including; Jonamac, Jonafree, and Jonagold?

The Jonathan apple is a medium size apple, that has a thin red skin, with a sweet taste that can often have a tart tang to it. The Jonathan apple is a wonderful apple for fresh eating but also makes for a great freezing as well as cooking apple.

Because the flesh of the apple may break down a bit during cooking, you can pair the Jonathan with other more dense apples such as the Granny Smith, or Fuji for your pie fillings. The Jonathan apple is also a very juicy apple, making this variety of apple the perfect choice for juice and cider.

If you plan on storing the Jonathan apple, you can typically store it for about 3-6 months in the refrigerator.

Did You Know Fact?

Most of the apples we discussed in this blog post contain Vitamins A and C as well trace amounts of folate. They are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which has been shown to help prevent heart disease and promote healthy digestion. Apples also contain potassium, which may reduce the chances of a stroke, and a trace amount of boron, believed to build bones and to increase mental vitality.

Cortland Apple Tree

One of the first McIntosh crosses, Cortland Apple Tree features that familiar vinous Mac flavor, crimson skin and bright white flesh with a slightly larger fruit than McIntosh. Cortland bears heavily each year and is very popular for fresh eating, especially in salads as the fruit does not brown quickly when exposed to air.

Latin Name: Malus domestica
Site and Soil: All apples like 1/2 day to full sun and well-drained soil.
Rootstock Description: M-7 is considered a semi-dwarf rootstock. Regular apple trees grafted on M-7 rootstock wiill grow 12-16 ft. in height. Crabapples, Columnars, Espaliers, and Combination Apples will be smaller. M-7 is very hardy and adapted to most soils.
Considered a dwarf rootstock, Apple trees on M-26 typically grow 8-12 ft. in height and are usually spaced 8-12 ft. apart. Crabapples and Columnars will likely be smaller. M-26 induces early bearing, usually in 2-3 years after planting, and grows well in most soils, except very wet and poorly drained ones. On windy sites, trees grafted on M-26 may need staking.
Pollination Requirements: All apples need another variety nearby for pollination. Neighboring trees often offer sufficient pollen for good fruit set.
Hardiness: Cortland Apple Tree is hardy to minus 30° F or below.
Bearing Age: 2-3 years after planting
Size at Maturity: 12-16 ft.
Bloom Time: April
Ripening Time: Early August
Yield: 30-50 lbs.
Pests & Diseases: Winter Banana Apple Tree can be affected by Apple Scab although it is considered resistant. Apple Scab is more prevalent in regions with wet springs, like we have in the Pacific Northwest. While it doesn’t seriously affect the eating quality of the fruit, it can cause black spots on the apples and foliage. Apple Scab can be controlled by sulfur and other sprays. Codling Moth can create wormy apples and aphids can damage the foliage of apple trees.
USDA Zone: 4
Sunset Western Zone: 1-9, 14-16
Sunset Northeast Zone: All zones

Why Grow Cortland Apples: Cortland Apple Uses And Facts

What are Cortland apples? Cortland apples are cold hardy apples originating from New York, where they were developed at an agricultural breeding program in 1898. Cortland apples are a cross between Ben Davis and McIntosh apples. These apples have been around long enough to be considered heirlooms that have passed from generation to generation. Read on and learn how to grow Cortland apples.

Why Grow Cortland Apples

The question here should really be why not, as tasty Cortland apple uses abound. The sweet, juicy, slightly tart apples are good for eating raw, cooking, or making juice or cider. Cortland apples work well in fruit salads because the snow white apples are resistant to browning.

Gardeners appreciate Cortland apple trees for their beautiful pink blooms and pure white blossoms. These apple trees set fruit without a pollinator, but another tree in close proximity improves production. Many prefer to grow Cortland apples near varieties such as Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Redfree or Florina.

How to Grow Cortland Apples

Cortland apples are suitable for growing in USDA plant hardiness zones 3 through 8. Apple trees need six to eight hours of sunlight per day.

Plant Cortland apple trees in moderately rich, well-drained soil. Look for a more suitable planting location if your soil contains heavy clay, fast-draining sand or rocks. You may be able to improve growing conditions by digging in plenty of manure, compost, shredded leaves or other organic material. Incorporate the material to a depth of 12 to 18 inches (30-45 cm.).

Water young apples trees deeply every seven to 10 days during warm, dry weather. Use a drip system or allow a soaker hose to trickle around the root zone. Never overwater – keeping the soil a little on the dry side is preferable to soggy soil. After the first year, normal rainfall usually provides enough moisture.

Don’t fertilize at planting time. Feed apple trees with a balanced fertilizer when the tree begins bearing fruit, usually after two to four years. Never fertilize after July; feeding trees late in the season produces tender new growth that may be nipped by frost.

Thin excess fruit to ensure healthier, better-tasting fruit. Thinning also prevents breakage caused by the weight of a heavy crop. Prune Cortland apple trees annually after the tree is bearing fruit.

About Cortland Apple Tree…

This product cannot be shipped to CA.

We are happy to bring this famous and delectable New York State variety to you. Developed in Geneva at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in the early 1900’s, this self-fruitful cross between McIntosh and Ben Davis apple is a favorite of cooks and orchardists alike. The Cortland is sweet and lightly tart at peak ripeness. Its brilliant red color is sometimes accompanied by light yellow streaks and green specks, a deep contrast compared to the fruits stark white, tender flesh. Amazingly, the flesh retains its white after slicing.
The Cortland apple makes a wonderful presentation whether on salads, fruit trays, or fresh out of your lunch box. It is also a prized cooking apple, most often used in pies, breads, and applesauce. The Cortland Apple Tree requires 800-1,000 chill hours and will serve as a good pollinator for Red Gravenstein, McIntosh, and Honeycrisp apples. The Cortland Apple Tree is ready for harvest between September and October, just in time for a warm apple pie on a cool, crisp fall day.
