About Northern Spy apples
The Northern Spy apple is one of the most famous apples originating in the U.S. in East Bloomfield New York around 1800 from a seed that came from Salisbury, Connecticut. From seed, the Northern Spy takes a decade to produce its first apple harvest. It continues to be grown mostly in northeastern U.S. and remains a popular apple in this area. It's usually picked in the autumn months of October and November while being used during the winter months. This apple is known to be a hearty winter variety due to its late-season ripeness.
Northern Spy apples have a crisp and yellowish flesh that is juicy and tart with a cider and sweet flavor. They have a reddish color with some yellow and bits of green. When it comes to nutritional value, these apples also contain a lot of dietary fiber which is essential to a healthy diet, and the skin contains vitamins A and C. Given the nutritional value of the apple there's no wonder the old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," rings true.
This apple is not as commercially available as other varieties because it's not perfect. Since it doesn't have a perfect round shape, not bright enough colors, and is susceptible to diseases, this apple is not as common in stores. It still commands the attention of those passionate for classic apples though, so it can still be found in season in markets, specialty stores, and grocery stores.
Prized for its capabilities to help make delicious apple desserts, the Northern Spy apple is a great fruit to try out in your next pie recipe. In fact, this particular apple is the go-to apple when it comes to making classic apple pies in certain parts of the country, especially in the northeastern states.
