Abstract: 'Northern Lights' is a new apple variety that ripens in early mid-season (mid-September). It is large and 60 to 100 per cent of its skin is a glossy, attractive bright red. Its flavor is slightly tart, fruity-flavored and very good. In addition to bearing very good fruit, the tree is especially resistant to severely cold winter temperatures. In North Dakota where trees of the very hardy variety, 'Mclntosh,' are often winter injured, 'Northern Lights' trees generally suffer less injury. 'Northern Lights' probably will be most useful for home orchards in severely cold regions near the northern limits of apple growing.
