The Spartan apple, developed in the Summerland Research Center in the 1920s, is one of the most successful varietals bred off McIntosh parentage. The Spartan is said to be a ‘vinous’ and sweet apple, in that it has an almost wine-like sweetness. This is a deep crimson apple, it is crispy and juicy, and tends to grow small to medium-sized fruit. This is a mid to late-season varietal, with a large harvest window (around 3 weeks) in early October. Reliably heavy crop and less difficult to grow. Good disease resistance. Long and heavy blossom makes it an especially good pollinator, plus the blossoms are especially resistant to spring colds. Zone hardiness: 3. Stores well.
