|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.|
