A very unique apple that deserves a place in cold climate growing. Minnesota #447 is a very sweet crisp apple that packs a sugarcane punch with hints of molasses. A late season ripener usually pushing into late September. Apples are smaller sized, averaging 5 to 6cm in size. Great for fresh eating and it's an excellent keeper which easily stores all winter! Also can be used for cider making and juicing. One of our families favourite apples to eat out here.
