An excellent eating apple, Spitzenbergs have long been rumored to be Thomas Jefferson's favorite. The green skin has a vibrant orange-red flush, and the flesh is aromatic and flavorful, with a rich sharpness. The Spitzenberg was the pie apple of choice through much of the 19th century. Today, it is beloved for its complex flavor and crisp finish - an apple lover's apple.
