Sandow (apple)

The Sandow is an apple cultivar that is an "open-pollinated seedling of Northern Spy" that was created in 1912.[1] It has been described as an apple that is suitable for eating,[2] (as opposed to being a cooking apple). It has a crisp flesh that is juicy and sweet, with "bright scarlet stripes over red flush".[1] It typically ripens in mid-October, and bears fruit sooner relative to other apple cultivars.[1] It tends to flourish best in zones 3-5[1] in the United States.
