A member of the rose family (Rosaceae), the Spartan apple was originally believed to be a cross between a McIntosh and Newton Pippin apple, however recent DNA testing has eliminated Newton as a possible parent.
Medium in size and round in shape the skin of the Spartan apple varies from bright red to dark purple red depending upon how long it is allowed to ripen on the tree. Its crisp white flesh is aromatic and exceptionally juicy with a balanced sweet tart apple flavor. An excellent keeper, the Spartan apple becomes slightly sweeter in cold storage
